Eve Belle care home, operated by Sanders Senior Living, visited North Crescent Primary School in Wickford, to witness the wonderful Christmas concert for family and friends, with an extra special performance for Eve Belle care home residents.
Pupils from the school sang a variety of Christmas songs, such as Rocking Around the Christmas Tree, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town and When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney. They also provided the community with a number of readings from all year groups, including Jingle Bells, Little Donkey and Twelve Days of Christmas.
At the end of the concert, pupils surprised the residents with a selection of beautiful handmade Christmas cards, which have been proudly displayed around Eve Belle care home.
Eve Belle has a long-standing relationship with North Crescent Primary School, forming a connection in March 2023. The school has played an important part in the home’s development with weekly visits from the school and exciting projects to create names for the communal spaces in the home.
Sharon Walker, Headteacher at North Crescent Primary School, said:
“Our pupils look forward to spending time with the ladies and gentlemen at Eve Belle every week. They are made to feel so welcome, and together they have formed memories that will last a lifetime. Our weekly visits have made such a positive difference to our pupils. They really enjoy learning first-hand about people’s life experiences from the past alongside sharing stories of their own. It was our pleasure to be able to reciprocate with your visit to school for a carol concert and mince pies with many of our younger children. It was utterly delightful to see the joy on both the pupil’s faces, the residents and all of the staff.”
Arrianne Concepcion, Home Manager at Eve Belle care home said:
“We were thrilled to be invited to the North Crescent Primary School and watch the wonderful Christmas carol concert, performed by many of the young children who visit our home.
The pupils visit on a weekly basis and provide a great opportunity for our residents to engage with the younger generation. We look forward to continuing this relationship and cannot wait for many more opportunities in the future.”
