Sixth Form Annual OAP Party

Despite the OAP party having to be cancelled due to the heavy snow, we still managed to spread festive cheer in the local community! 

Unfortunately, due to the weather conditions, this year’s Sixth Form OAP party had to be cancelled. We had spent the last 3 months organising the day, which would have consisted of festivities such as carol singing, bingo and afternoon tea. We managed to get over 20 raffle prizes donated from firms in the local area, as well enough food donations from the whole school to fill 110 hampers to gift to the guests.

Although we were unable to personally give them all out ourselves, members from The Rotary Club (who have assisted us during the whole process of arranging the party) will be delivering some of them over the Christmas period.

A big thank you to our family support worker, Brenda Taylor who delivered the remainder of hampers to local care homes including Eleonore House, Eastfield and Bethany Homestead Nursing Home. We would like to thank all of the pupils and parents who have donated food and gifts as we would not have been able to hold the day without your support. The raffle prizes will be held on to for next year’s OAP party so let’s hope it doesn’t snow again!

Finally, we must say a huge thank you to Mrs Whelan who has helped the sixth form organise this repeatedly successful and well attended annual event, working tirelessly to ensure everything runs smoothly both in the run up to the event and on the day - THANK YOU!
