Students of Sir Herbert Leon Academy

host delightful cream tea event

Sir Herbert Leon Acadamy
The Peartree Centre for Age UK Milton Keynes was abuzz with joy and warmth as students from Sir Herbert Leon Academy orchestrated a charming cream tea event for the elderly residents of the community. The event, held on Monday 25th March, not only brought smiles and laughter but also served as a bridge between generations, fostering a sense of unity and camaraderie.
Among the distinguished guests in attendance was Nicole Wong, Associate Assistant Principal and Director of SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) at Sir Herbert Leon Academy. Ms. Wong's presence added a touch of honour and significance to the occasion, underscoring the importance of intergenerational connections and community engagement.

Speaking about the event, Ms. Wong expressed her admiration for the students' initiative and the impact it had on the community. "It's heart-warming to see our students actively involved in initiatives that not only enrich their own lives but also bring joy and companionship to others in the community. Events like these not only foster empathy and understanding but also instill values of kindness and compassion," she remarked.

The Cream Tea event served as a poignant reminder of the power of small gestures in making a big difference in people's lives. As the elderly guests savoured their tea and indulged in delightful conversation with the students, it was evident that moments of connection and companionship are invaluable treasures that transcend age barriers.
