Senior Citizens Party

The annual Senior Citizen’s Christmas party was a huge hit with over 70 local parishioners attending. The guests enjoyed the refreshments provided which were served by sixth form students whilst being entertained by our school choir and a game of bingo. The celebrations finished with a free raffle in which all the prizes had been donated. A big thank you to all who attended and to the staff and students who made this happen.
