YOUNGSTERS starting secondary school next month had the chance to prepare some tasty treats for elderly residents as part of a community initiative.
The children, who will attend St Katherine’s School in Pill from September, prepared the afternoon tea for residents of Alliance Homes housing in the village.
Starting secondary school can be a daunting experience for some pupils and so as part of their transition, 16 were chosen to attend a summer school at the Ham Green school.
Organised by staff in North Somerset Council’s people and community services department, the three-day scheme saw the youngsters take part in activities focussed on team-building, body language, listening skills and how to make the right impression. It then culminated in the afternoon tea on the final day with the food and drinks prepared in the school’s restaurant, The Lead at Ham Green.
Paula Le-Milliere-Tinney, team coordinator at North Somerset Council, said: “These summer schools are such a positive experience for the children who attend, its great to see them flourish and grow as individual’s over the three days.”
