A GROUP of international students form Bromsgrove School hosted a festive tea and carols event for residents of a local care home.
The annual event saw the school’s International Baccalaureate (IB) students invite 30 residents from Rashwood and Burcott Grange to Housman Hall for an afternoon of Christmas cheer.
In preparation, students crafted decorations and seasonal presents during lunchtimes, foraged for holly in the school grounds, presented the food and rehearsed the large group of singers and musicians.
A spokesperson at Bromsgrove School, said: “It was fantastic to see lots of Housman students chipping in ad hoc, generously helping set up and clear away afterwards, as well as welcoming guests to the school courteously and warmly.
“The elderly guests, as well as the staff who accompanied them commented on how wonderful they had been, bringing many of the quieter residents out of their shells.”
