10 residents from Jewish Care homes; Sidney Corob, Rela Goldhill Lodge and Clore Manor, visited JCoSS yesterday for tea and entertainment from the schools choir. The group had hoped to join pupils in the Sukkah but due to poor weather conditions they met in the comfort of the school hall.
As the Choir sang songs including mac the Knife, residents tapped away whilst enjoying sandwiches and cake. Year 8 & 9 pupils served tea to residents and spent time chatting to them.
Speaking about the visit year 9 pupil Hannah Kieve said ‘It is really nice to have visitors to the school and share our warmth and community with them’
Rosa Kochan, a Year 8 pupil commented; ‘It is so nice to see the residents having such a nice time and I really liked meeting them’
The school’s Informal Jewish Education Co-ordinator, Sara Leven said; ‘It’s moments like this that make my job so special, by bringing Jewish Values to life’
Before leaving, Rela Goldhill Lodge resident Matthew Kayne presented a card and cake to the pupils thanking them on behalf of everyone at Jewish Care for inviting them.
