Senior Citizens Attend 46th Annual Christmas Party
Over 75 senior citizens were treated to a day of entertainment from students and staff at New Line Learning Academy's annual Christmas party.
The guests, who are all from the local community, played bingo and watched performances from children at Little Learners Nursery and Tiger Primary School before enjoying a traditional Christmas lunch served by Year 9 students.
The day was finished off with shows from the academy choir, drama students and the staff band. There was also a raffle with a variety of prizes, including hampers decorated and filled by students at Cornwallis Academy.
This year marked the event's 46th anniversary. The first party took place in 1969 at Senacre Technology College, which later merged with Oldborough Manor before the two became NLL.
Principal David Elliott said: "The party for senior citizens is always an important event for us. The students really make an effort to interact with the guests and make sure they are well looked after while they are here.
"It's fantastic to be able to welcome new people from the community and to see the same people return each year. A lot of hard work goes into the event and it really makes it worth it when the guests say how much they have enjoyed themselves."
