Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey students put on a tea party for older Islanders

Strawberries and cream were the order of the day at a tea party organised by students for older members of the community.

Residents from Blackburn Lodge, Age UK Sheppey and Barton Court care home all went along to the Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey’s east site in Minster last Monday.

They were joined in Minster Road by the Mayor and Mayoress of Swale Cllr George and Brenda Bobbin as well as representatives from Dementia Friends, a support group run by Barton Court for people with the disease.

Guests enjoyed a cream tea and watched a song and dance medley from the school’s production of Joseph, a piano recital and there were pamper treatments given by the beauty students.

Pupils from the Year 9 health and social care course served tea, coffee and cakes, a selection of scones with strawberries and cream as well as a traditional Victoria sandwich cake.

Barton Court representatives were then presented with a cheque for £200 which had been raised by sixth form students.
