Generation gap

PUPILS at Gillotts School in Henley staged a concert and tea party for the residents of three care

PUPILS at Gillotts School in Henley staged a concert and tea party for the residents of three care homes.

About 35 youngsters from years 7 to 10 performed a variety of songs from Jimi Hendrix and Coldplay numbers to classical pieces and highlights from Les Miserables.

They were watched by several dozen elderly people from Lashbrook House in Shiplake, Acacia Lodge in Quebec Road, Henley and Abbeycrest in Sonning Common.

Between sets, the students served tea and biscuits and chatted with their guests. The Mayor of Henley Julian Brookes also attended.

The school’s head of music Frances David, who organised the day with music teacher Geoff Bull, said: “I thought it would be good for the students to get involved in the wider community.



“It was a huge success. The students were exceptional and everyone had a very enjoyable time. We will definitely look to organise something similar again.”
