Senior Citizens’ Christmas Party
The School has hosted a Christmas concert and tea party for local elderly people for many years. Pupils at the school are actively involved in the organisation of the transport, the provision of the food and the entertainment. One of the highlights of the festive season, more than 200 Senior Citizens from the local community are collected and brought to School for a tea party tea followed by a Carol Concert with performances by the Senior Choir and Orchestra.
This year, we had a record number of guests and they enjoyed Christmas classics by Senior musicians and choristers, a repeat of Mr McKenna’s winning Teachers Got Talent performance of Robbie Williams’ Angels, and Golden Oldies led by the Staff Choir. Held in the Dining Room, a fantastic spread was laid on for our guests to enjoy, all prepared by WGS pupils and staff. Director of Music, Mrs Sargent paid tribute to the House Committees for organising the event and also a preceding House Competition festive ‘Bake Off’ earlier in the day, which, in turn, provided our visitors with spectacular seasonal bakes. Thanks to the generous donations of gifts we had received from Withington families, every guest was delighted to receive a gift. The event was a fabulous success and, as ever, enjoyed by all who were involved and attended.
