Pupils in Year Six have written individual letters to elderly members of our community who may be lonely or isolated and in need of friendship.
These letters will be distributed through local charity, Volunteering in Health
, who work to support these people. We are hoping we may receive some lovely replies, finding out all about what interests our recipients and maybe even gaining an insight into what school life was like when they were at school, so we can compare to how it is now.
We have already received a reply from the charity, helping us to find out more about the importance of volunteering linked to the concept of service. We are very proud of the children for recognising the importance of looking after people in the wider community that we share.
