Bournemouth students put in an Olympian effort to bring joy to dozens of older people in their community.
The LeAF Academy joined forces with the charity Faithworks Wessex to host a summer Olympics party, which saw their special guests treated to entertainment, afternoon tea and games.
And after supping tea and eating delicious cakes the party goers were invited to partake in a series of games – from tenpin bowling to board games.
Principal of Oak Academy, Richard Burgas, said: “It was wonderful to welcome the more mature members of the local community to our school.
“Students from across the federation led the entertainment and were the perfect hosts around the tea tables.
“We very much see ourselves as part of the community, integrating with others from all generations, so it was an honour to host such an occasion.”
Bournemouth based charity, Faithworks Wessex, aims to bring hope into the lives of those who are struggling with isolation or poverty and as part of this organise events to give people days to remember.
Operations Manager for Faithworks Wessex, Emma Heath, said: “We love joining forces with the LeAF Academy to organise these special events.
“It is wonderful to bring the generations together and see each group get so much pleasure from each other’s company.
“The students put on a brilliant time for our guests with wonderful entertainment and fun games inspired by the Olympics.”
