The Tea Party for older people took place on Sunday 11th October 2015 at the Upper Site in Palmers Green. It was lovely to see the return of
some of our guests from last year as well as some newcomers from the local community.
Our Year 10 students not only baked cakes, but were charming hosts and looked after our guests very well. Tamera 10T, Salem 10A and Ketsia 10J got the afternoon off to a spirited start by performing several different solos. Sophia 10A, Niamh 10A and Aisling 10L performed some traditional Irish dances.
From the thank you cards received, it is clear that our guests enjoyed the food and entertainment but particularly the company of our girls. Our students also enjoyed meeting the guests, and as Cindy Barbour
10F said, “We got to talk to older people and they told us beautiful stories about their past – I really enjoyed talking to them.” -
Our thanks to the Knights of St Columba from St Monica’s for providing help with transport to enable people to attend. Our guests said they would like more opportunities to come to events and meet
with the girls. It was therefore good to see that some people were able to take up the invitation to attend our school carol service and meet up again with the girls who had hosted the tea party.
Thanks to all our girls involved in the tea party; they were excellent! Make a note in your diary – our next Tea Party is on Sunday 22nd May!
