On Wednesday 12th December, Oak Academy hosted their annual intergenerational event with members of the community. The event was hosted by our Community Service team, who every week attend the Open Door group at Cornerstones Church during our Enrichment afternoon. They were supported by our Sixth Form Health and Social Care students, Holli Llewellyn, Shelby Croft and Stella Dicks who excelled in their organisational skills and catering preparation. During the afternoon, the 62 guests and three local councillors enjoyed a Christmas quiz, craft making activities and a delicious buffet all served by our Oak Academy waiters and waitresses.
To bring additional sparkle and shine to the day, students from our ‘Showtime’ t group performed Christmas delights as well as singing carols for all. The talented Toby Wiggins, from LeAF Studio School assisted by Kacey Shepherd from Oak 6th Form, controlled the sound booth.
A truly wonderful afternoon where people from as young as 4 months to 92 years came together to celebrate the joy of Christmas.
