St Cuthbert’s welcome local community for ‘Communi-tea’
St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School opened its school to welcome members of the wider St Cuthbert’s community for tea, mince pies and festive fun. This was the school’s very first ‘Communi-tea’ at Christmas.
Father Christmas also blessed the school with a surprise visit.
Guests included members of the St Helens based John Smith’s Helping Hands Dementia Café group, and the St Helens branch of the St Vincent de Paul Society, and local families. The day consisted of Christmas carols, with lots of singing and dancing.
Staff said it was a pleasure to open theirschool doors to such fabulous guests, and great to share in the company of the local St Cuthbert’s community this Christmas time.
Students had a lot of fun bingo calling and organising a Christmas quiz, but the real joy was spending time with others.
Each guest took home a specially designed handmade glass Christmas decoration, to help remind them of their time at St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School for itsfirst evert Communi-tea at Christmas, a tradition they now hope to continue each year.
