members were also up on their feet dancing as a live band played them a selection of Christmas tunes.

Other wintry activities followed, including a Christmas drama piece, a quiz, bingo and a raffle.

After the conclusion of the party every member left with their own Christmas card and gift from Santa.

Zoe Dyer, assistant head for the school’s sixth form, said: “Many thanks to all who took part in yet another outstanding Christmas party for our senior citizens.”
