Community Care

Welcome to the Community Care page on the St. Olivers Primary School website. This year,sixth class pupils participated in an intergenerational project with Carlingford Nursing Home along with Miss Michelle.

We visited  the Nursing home in Carlingford for five consecutive weeks earlier in the year. I would like to thank all of the pupils involved for representing the school in such a positive manner. The pupils spent time with the people in the Nursing home, they were mannerly, polite, kind and caring. A majority of the time spent in the Nursing home  was allocated to simply being company for those  who were there, listening to interesting stories and talking about life at school.  The pupils  participated in singing songs and playing games.  The music was thoroughly enjoyed by all involved and many of the people in the Nursing home joined in with our singing. The pupils documented their experiences of their visits to the Nursing home. Here are the links to the word documents.
