Last week, Northampton High School students from U3 paid a visit to the residents of St Christopher’s Care Home in Northampton, as part of the School’s Outreach programme.
The girls were really excited to meet the residents and talk to them about their lives and experiences, and they were also keen to share their current eTwinning project with the people there, which is titled ‘Don’t judge a person by their face’.
“The aim of our visit was to find out what kindness means to others. We found out that to the residents, kindness means helping them with everyday life and generally being kind.”
As well as this, other topics for discussion were talking about how the girls celebrated ‘Kindness Day’ and ‘Inclusion: what it means to others’. The pupils found it to be a very rewarding experience, and loved the time they spent with the residents at St Christopher’s – and they even had the chance to talk to a former Northampton High Headmistress who resides there!
“The people were really caring and I loved talking to them.”
“The residents are really interesting people, and one of them was the former (Northampton High) Headmistress which was cool!”
We thank all of the lovely people at St Christopher’s for their time and hospitality, and we hope we can come back and visit you all again soon!
