School children visit care home once again

In what as been a long awaited return, students from The Marsh Academy eventually return to Madeira Lodge Care Home for an after school club with a difference.

Developed in partnership between the home and school’s health and social care teachers, pupils between the ages of seven and 13 will routinely visit the care home to gain positive new life experiences.  

Sarah Pennington, Manager at Madeira Lodge Care Home says: “It is wonderful to be able to welcome the school and its pupils back into our home once again. Everyone has missed that positive interaction between the generations; talking, catching up, and sharing. It is also especially good for the children to develop their social skills and widen their horizons by learning from those who have lived a lot of life.”

Pupils from The Marsh Academy will visit every Thursday after school to take part in activities and conversations with those that live at Madeira Lodge Care Home. From cake decorating to art activities, residents and pupils will work together rekindling old bonds and learning new things from each other.
