Care Home Presents Local Secondary School With Community Award For Decade Long Partnership

A Birmingham care home honoured a local secondary school with a special award during its end-of-year presentation evening – recognising their long standing partnership.

Church Rose, a diverse care home in Handsworth, presented the ‘Community Award’ to students of Holyhead Secondary School to acknowledge and show gratitude for their integration into the home – a relationship that has spread over the past 10 years.

Both pillars of the Birmingham community, the care home and school proudly celebrate their thriving relationship, sharing a common vision of fostering connections and creating meaningful experiences for the residents, students and wider community.

Regular visits to the Payton Road home see students performing and reading to the residents, as well as collaborating on arts and crafts activities – providing avenues for creative expression and shared experiences. Earlier this year, residents and students enjoyed a joint celebration for King Charles’ coronation, commemorating the historic occasion together.

It was at this celebration that the school invited Church Rose to its end-of-year presentation evening at the Town Hall with Lord Mayor Chaman Lal. As well as recognising the academic achievements of the past year, the care home honoured students with a special award marking the intergenerational relationship.

Mae Ann Lacson, Manager of Church Rose, said: “We are extremely grateful for the relationship we have built with Holyhead School and the compassion and patience that the students have with our residents. It is a highlight of the week when they come to visit and we are excited to continue strengthening this relationship for years to come.”
