In celebration of Intergenerational Week, the class from Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Academy Primary School in the town wanted to put a smile on each residents’ face by giving them a sunflower, the national flower of Ukraine.
Each sunflower had a prayer card attached, in support of the Ukrainian people.
The children also donated flower seeds for the residents to plant for the Ideal Care Homes – which runs Fairway View – annual Gardens in Bloom competition, which encourages staff, residents and the local community to create beautiful outdoor spaces.
Lauren Soutar, a teacher at the school, said: “I hope the flowers made the residents of Fairway View smile, and know that we are thinking of them.
"The seeds will be a reminder that they are in our hearts."
Mavis Wood, 92, one of the residents at Fairway View, was very happy to receive her sunflower.
She said: “The children put so much work into making these flowers for us, it’s lovely to know they are thinking of us.”
Gaynor Smart-McCann, manager at Fairway View, expressed her gratitude to the school and its pupils, and said: “It’s so important to keep our residents connected to the local community and especially with the younger generation.
"The children from the school have done a great job with the flowers and the prayers are beautiful.
"Well done and thank you.”
