“Hegoa da geroa”

Currently, our school is working on a collaborative project within the neighbourhood of Intxaurrondo. The project, which has been up and running for the last number of years, is a collaboration between Txara Nursing Home and ourselves. The aim of this project is to encourage interaction and understanding between our pupils and the elderly residents of Txara by engaging in, for example, Christmas arts and crafts, board games, playing boules, storytelling, and so on.  The initial aim of  this project was for the elderly residents and our pupils to share their stories and anecdotes. Not only have these experiences been enriching for everyone involved, but on occasion very touching as well.
