Service users of the Waterport Terraces Day Centre welcomed pupils from St Paul’s School Choir on Friday 1st April.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been tough, in particular for the elderly members of our community. Therefore, as part of a Citizenship learning initiative, St Paul’s School is aiming to teach their pupils to appreciate the value of giving and how to positively influence the emotional wellbeing of others through their own actions. With a view to raise smiles, the Choir delivered a short performance full of singing and dancing that was greatly welcomed and enjoyed by all.
Service users of the Waterport Day Centre kindly gifted the children with handmade Easter gifts as a gesture of gratitude for their wonderful performance.
Chief Executive of the Care Agency, Mr Carlos Banderas said: “I would like to extend my most sincere thanks to the wonderful St Paul’s Choir and their teachers for approaching us with this great initiative. It is heart-warming to see Gibraltar’s future generation acknowledge the importance of positively influencing the emotional wellbeing of others through their actions. We look forward to further collaborating on joyous initiatives such as these in the future.”
Minister for the Care Agency, Minister Albert Isola said: “It is great to see such warm, kind smiles illuminate the Waterport Terraces Day Centre, following such a challenging period particularly experienced by the elderly members of our community. My heartfelt thanks to all involved in making this event a memorable one for all.”
