Never Mind the Age Gap

This half term we have had young people from Bradford Academy partner with a community project for the elderly to help break down generational boundaries. The pupils in year 8, spent time baking, visiting the project helping serve dinners and play bowls with elderly people from their community. This was a fantastic afternoon of building relationships, conversations and the opportunity for the young people to hear some stories of Bradford of old as well as break down any barriers between young and old. As part of this work the time spent with the community group will go towards helping the year 8’s achieve their archbishop of York award scheme that e:merge run in partnership with Bradford Academy every week.
