Taking the festive spirit to Annesley Lodge

13th December 2017

Annesley Lodge visit Dec2017As it traditional, we recently invited the residents of Annesley Lodge to join us at National this week (12 December 2017) for a festive get together over drinks, mince pies and to listen to our fabulous vocal choir Cadence, but the icy conditions prevented the residents coming to us.... our students did not want to miss out on the chance to support their local community however, so we took the party to Annesley Lodge instead!!

Students and staff took mince pies, slices of Christmas cake, soft drinks and presents for the residents. All of the visitors from National sat and joined in with a festive colouring activity and chatted about Christmas plans.

Our connection with Annesley Lodge is very important to the academy and we are glad that we were still able to support and join in with residents' festive plans, teaching students the key value of charity and giving back to their community.
