Senior citizens enjoy a Christmas party and entertainment organised by students.
Almost 60 local senior citizens and carers from nursing homes around Heywood - including Millfield, Briar House and Heywood Court, attended a Christmas party here at Siddal Moor last week.
Mr Cooke and Mr Mulqueen, with the help of students from Year 10 and 11, organised the event. After a lunch of pie and peas and mince pies the guests enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment with solo singing performances from Holly Albiston - Rocking around the Christmas Tree and Holly Hughes - Walking in a Winter Wonderland.
Performing Arts students showed off a spectacular dance routine and this was followed by a raffle draw with some great prizes for guests that had been donated by staff and students.
The afternoon proved a success and was a lovely opportunity for members of our community, both young and old to come together. Mr Cooke and Mr Mulqueen would like to thank everyone for attending, and all the students and staff who helped out on the day.
