In December, students from Priestnall School paid a special visit to Priestnall Court Residential Home.

Ten students, who were from the school council, visited the residential home to spend time with residents and share their work.

They told them all about the school and their roles within the school council.

Residents enjoyed hearing about their work and getting to know the students.

Later on, they played cards, board games and solved jigsaws together.

It was a fantastic day and we received lots of positive feedback from the residents and the staff on how much of a positive impression our students made.

Members of the school band also attended the residential home the very next day to play Christmas Carols, which brought a lot of festive cheer!

Following the success of their visit, the school council have planned to make regular trips to Priestnall Court.

They also want to invite the residents to join us in school for a coffee morning later this month, and are already planning the event themselves.

The school council have made us incredibly proud by showing their commitment to making a difference not just in school, but in the local community.

We look forward to hearing about their future trips!
