Pupils help bring a smile to local care home residents

Posted: 5th February 2021

Pupils from Abbot’s Hill School head down the hill to say a socially distanced ‘Hello!’ to residents at Water Mill Care Home.

This week, pupils  onsite under the key worker care provision have spent time designing colourful banners and drawings for a very special cause.  At lunch time today, the children said hello from the hill to Water Mill Care Home in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead. Pupils and staff members walked down the School drive to stand safely on the other side of the road  of  the care home.  They waved and showed the residents their drawings, banners and pictures. The care home residents and their carers waved through the windows back at the children. It brought smiles to everyone’s faces. Even cars, cyclists and pedestrians beeped horns and waved hello.

Bringing a little bit of happiness to the elderly residents who may not have been able to have seen their own grandchildren and families was a wonderful way to spend a Friday afternoon and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed meeting some new friends!
