Moree Secondary College students spread Christmas spirit to Fairview residents

A handful of Moree Secondary College students had the honour of brightening the day of the residents of Fairview Retirement Village recently.

The year 12 hospitality students spent two days baking cookies, brownies and rasberry slice before they hand-delivered the delicious goodies to all Fairview residents on Wednesday, December 6.

All students in the school also created Christmas cards, which were given to the residents along with their special morning tea.

Woolworths also donated fruit to be handed out.

This is the first time the students have done something like this for Fairview residents, however it was such a hit that they’ve been asked to do it twice a year.

The students said it was a rewarding experience to see the smiles on the residents faces when they received their gifts.

One of the students, Taylor Woodgate completed work experience at Fairview earlier in the year and she was instrumental in leading the project.

“It makes you feel nice, like you’re bringing happiness to the elderly,” she said.

“It’s just to give back to the community.”

Hospitality teacher Jessi-Lee Stewart would like to thank Woolworths for donating the fruit and Fairview for welcoming the students.
