Hospitality students host afternoon tea for the elderly

Posted: 22nd April 2016

Year 12 Hospitality students have been busy hosting an afternoon tea at All Saints’ Academy for residents and carers of Monkscroft Care home.

Students spent all morning cooking scones, profiteroles, quiche and making sandwiches, tea and coffee. They made sure to present the food beautifully and also took care over a slideshow and music from when the residents were younger. The students served them their food and then joined them to talk to them about their life experiences.

One resident from Monkscroft Care Home, Stan Dunn used to be a footballer and once played for Manchester United. He talked to the students about his experiences as well as his love of dance. One of our All Saints’ Academy staff, who is a trained dancer, visited the residents and had a dance with Stan Dunn.

The residents and carers all enjoyed themselves and the sixth form students did too! Zea Cuciurean, 16 said ‘it was an incredible opportunity to meet members of our local community.’ Lyndsey Beale, 16 said ‘It was fun cooking the dishes and watching the residents enjoy the quality of the food we prepared.’

Lewis Owen, 17 said ‘I chose a wide range of music for the afternoon tea and it was great to see our guests singing and dancing.’
