Senior citizens from across Clydebank enjoyed a day of festive cheer organised by pupils at a high school.

Almost 80 elderly residents took part in activities, including playing bingo, social dancing and enjoying a sing-song at the annual St Peter the Apostle High School’s Christmas community event.

The day also allowed pupils to showcase their talents, including a performance from the school choir as well as individual pupils on piano and xylophone.

As part of the day’s schedule, the elderly guests were treated to afternoon tea and presented with a small gift of chocolates and a Christmas card.

Linda Booth, St Peter’s headteacher, told the audience that the event was a welcome opportunity for her pupils to put the school motto “Compassion and Hope” into action by allowing themselves to be at the service of others.

She said: “We were delighted to welcome local elderly residents into the school to treat them for the afternoon at the second Christmas community event. A wonderful day was had by all.”

The day was organised by the parent council and school’s chaplaincy team.
