Chalfont St Peter CofE Academy (CSPA) recently took part in a project with anti-food waste charity All Together Community.
Members of the school council joined seven older residents at Gold Hill Baptist Church on October 20, where they took part in a variety of activities.
The session aimed to bring together members of the local community, help reduce loneliness, and improve social skills.
The children and residents baked pumpkin cakes together to learn about food waste and the number of pumpkins thrown away every year following Halloween. They also did some peaceful colouring while chatting with one another.
Headteacher Mrs Harrison said: “At CSPA, we believe that it is important to teach children about the importance of community and kindness. The intergenerational session was a perfect opportunity for our children to give back to the local community and extend a hand of friendship to older members of the village.”
Founder of All Together Community Louise Chamberlain said the session was a “huge success”.
