The start of the new academic year has seen the introduction of new Senior and Junior Partners to AGE MIX. Long standing Senior Partners were joined by a new intake of Senior Partners – many with direct links to the school. It is so wonderful to hear the stories they have to share about their experiences of WCESS in days gone by.
Year 7 students have been keen to join in too – with 9 year 7s keen to participate in the Age Mix programme. Our first session in November was a ’getting to know you’ session – we played games and shared stories about ourselves; all over a cup of tea, of course! In December, Tom, one of our Senior Partners had the wonderful idea of delivering a session all about music through the ages. Tom took us on a musical journey; informing us about legendary musicians and showing an impressive collection of music and equipment. Leo and Ben, our Junior
Partners completed the journey by bringing us to the 21st Century with technical jargon and lots of POP!
Together, we attended a ‘Winter’s Showcase’ - a stunning performance of dance, where one of our Junior Partners Georgia was brave enough to put on a solo performace!
On behalf of Age Mix we wish everyone in our community a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
