Senior Citizen Christmas Lunch

On Wednesday 5th December, the senior citizens of Great Torrington took shelter from the pouring rain and joined us for their annual Christmas lunch. They were shown to the dining hall where the tables adorned with holly and crackers awaited them. The event, which started several years ago on a much smaller scale, is now a firm feature in the school calendar and the children look forward to compiling a full programme of entertainment for the afternoon.

Almost forty diners, served by pupils in year 6, enjoyed a meal of roast beef with all the trimmings followed by traditional Christmas pudding and clotted cream. The guests then relaxed as children from across the year groups took to the stage to sing some traditional Christmas songs as well as some wartime tunes. The proceedings were met with warm applause and the event was concluded with a few words from the Mayor who thanked the school, the children in particular, the Rotary Club of Torrington for providing transport and The Cavaliers for funding the event.
