Friend in Deed weekly community outreach work with St. Edmund's.
We had the most magical afternoon when 6 children from St Edmund's R C Primary School in Bungay visited Chevington Lodge care home!
The school children read books, played games and chatted to residents. One of the most beautiful moments came when a resident asked if he could read to the children. The whole room, residents, children and staff were captivated.
A resident said to one of the children that they should tell their dad that they deserve a treat for visiting the care home today, to which the child responded “coming here has been a treat” ❤️
The power of bringing different ages together never ceases to amaze us. Thank you to this forward thinking school and very caring, care home. We are hoping for the visits to continue weekly, to create more smiles and reduce loneliness. Well done to everyone
Some of our lovely displays around the school.
Our end of term performances after working with Go-Geronimo on dance routines.
St Edmund's children celebrated their link with the Congo School Of Peace with a week of special activities related to the culture of the Congo. Their exhibition was well attended and the Mayor of Bungay said 'We very much enjoyed seeing the exhibition. Your pupils are a credit to the school, so knowledgeable and so helpful.' A wonderful time was had by all!
