Betty Harris said: “We loved the round tables this year, it made it really sociable and easy to talk to people. The girls were wonderful, they’ve clearly worked so hard. The food was amazing.”

Partrick Byner agreed: “The music performances were just incredible, and so were the cakes!”

Head Lars Fox said: “I always enjoy meeting senior citizens from our local community and, by the wide smiles on their faces, I can tell our Year 10 students do too. Our guests have done so much for the community over their lifetimes, so it is a nice opportunity for us to show our appreciation.”
