Senior Prefects Community Outreach Project
As part of Assistant Head Girl, Rosie Delaney's community outreach project, the Senior Prefects took the school choir to the local elderly residential care home Newfield Lodge, Castleford. The afternoon was a great success, with the residents commenting on how well the choir preformed, and how excellently the prefects conducted themselves. In addition, the senior prefects brought festive treats to the care home to give to the residents, with Courtney Kelso's Christmas cake being very popular amongst the staff and the lodgers alike.
Hopefully this will be the beginning of a new partnership with Newfield Lodge. In the very near future, the Senior Prefect team are looking forward to going back to offer their services, such as horticultural projects and expanding relationships further between the Academy and the Lodge.
Finally, a special thank you goes out to the members of staff who accompanied the prefects and the choir to the care home, as without them, this trip would not have been possible.
