We were greeted by the staff and introduced to the residents in the lounge, then entertained by Paul with his guitar and Faye, another resident who sang for us. We joined in, singing, dancing and playing musical instruments to Christmas songs.
At lunch we joined the residents at their tables and enjoyed a delicious meal of glazed ham, potatoes and vegetables, followed by mini pavlovas and cream for dessert. What a wonderful experience for us all.
Many thanks to parents/whānau who helped make this so successful and a huge thank you to Nina and all the staff at the residential care home.
We intend taking small groups of children to the care home on a regular basis and invite the residents to the kindergarten.
