Pupils hold Easter party for care home residents

Posted on 08 April 2011

Pupils from Drummond Community High School have held an Easter party for residents paying for long term care at the City of Edinburgh Council's Porthaven Care Home, it has been reported.

The kids helped residents at the care home to make Easter bonnets, colour in Easter eggs and partake in other fun spring-based games, reports carehome.co.uk.

This comes as part of a year-long project for the S5 and S6 pupils at the school who have spent the last twelve months visiting people paying for care at the centre.

According to the website, Josh Duffy, S6 pupil, said: "The experience has been great. It has made each of us, in turn learn valuable lessons, and has brought us all closer together. The residents have made us all appreciate our own families and have moulded us into who we are today."

College students in West Suffolk have also recently visited residents paying for care, pampering them with hand massages and nail filing and painting, reports the Bury Free Press.
