A party from Brook View care home in West Moors, including 101-year-old Esme Bannister, were the guests of honour at a dress rehearsal of Moyles Court School’s recent production of Beauty and the Beast.
Esme said, “They were so lovely to look at, and they put in such a lot of effort. It was really wonderful to watch.”
On arrival at Ibsley Village Hall, Esme and fellow residents were welcomed by pupils and staff, before taking up the best seats in the house with a close-up view of the live action.
Moyles Court headteacher Richard Milner-Smith said, “We’re always keen to develop links with the community and the interaction with Brook View is a great way for the pupils to learn how to be around our older generation.
“It can be nerve wracking for some children when they perform for older people but when they see the smiles and reaction on these residents’ faces it gives them a real confidence boost.”
