WOODKIRK Academy’s Year 12 students put together an afternoon to remember for the senior citizens of Morley, Tingley and the surrounding area.
More than 100 elderly members of the community were treated to a Christmas-themed afternoon that included a raffle, bingo and Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.
The catering staff managed to produce some wonderful food for the visitors, despite the fact that they arrived just half-an-hour after all 1,800 pupils had finished their own lunches.
The whole event was organised by various members of the Year 12 group and included performances by the Year 9 performing arts group who showed off their Rock ‘n’ Roll dance moves and the Woodkirk Soul Band who provided the backing music to the dancing and shenanigans that followed the meal.
PE teacher Andy Smith made a special appearance dressed as Santa and said he was amazed by the maturity of the students and their desire to help and serve the guests that had come along.
He added: “The students have been fantastic.
“They got stuck in to all the jobs from re-filling glasses to washing the pots but also doing it with massive smiles on their faces.
“The whole event was a real credit to the students.”
