Last week the pupils of TGBS had the pleasure of speaking with the CEO of Age UK Birmingham, Steve Thompson. The purpose of this assembly was to encourage students to actively engage in discussions and brainstorming on ways to support and assist the elderly in our local community. The CEO’s visit provided a unique opportunity for our pupils to interact with a leader in the field of senior care and contribute ideas that can make a tangible impact on the lives of those in need.
The assembly with the Age UK marked a significant milestone in our school’s ongoing commitment to community service. It provided students with an invaluable opportunity to build upon the impactful initiatives they have undertaken this year. From successful fundraising campaigns to heart-warming visits to local care homes, our pupils have demonstrated time and again their dedication to making a positive difference in the lives of others. The assembly served as a catalyst for further exploration and ideation, allowing students to delve into new and innovative ways to extend their support and create lasting change in the community.
Drawing inspiration from their past experiences, students are now gearing up to implement exciting new projects that transcend traditional forms of community outreach. The assembly acted as a platform for the announcement of these initiatives, sparking enthusiasm and a renewed sense of purpose among the pupils.
We are thrilled about the progress of our growing partnership with Age UK and are unwavering in our commitment to creating a meaningful and lasting impact on our local community. Stay tuned for our upcoming event in collaboration with Age UK, set to be launched before the half term break – an opportunity for our school community to come together and make a positive difference!
