Rushcliffe Action Aid – Community support
The Rushcliffe Action Aid in the community has started well this half term with 2 visits to Epperstone Court home for the elderly. The first visit was all about supporting residents with their technology. Year 8 students gave some useful advice on getting the most out of your mobile phone and laptops. The second visit was all about social interaction between the young and old. Year 8 and 9 students spent an afternoon playing some familiar and some less familiar board games with residents. The residents also attended the Rushcliffe production of Chicago.
Rushcliffe pupils were exemplary not just in their behaviour but their ability to interact with ease, those they were helping or socialising with. The manager of the home and residents have been very complimentary about the pupils and the school.
