Here is what some of our students have to say about Linking Generations
Here is a bit of the letter:
‘The experience of Linking Generations helped me to really value older people and their experiences. I am incredibly thankful to all the people who make this program possible.’
‘ We get to give back to the community. We hear stories from the past and we get to make new friends.’
‘We get to to have fun with our seniors while learning new things and giving back to the community.’
‘ I enjoy Linking Generations because we get to talk to the seniors and get to know another generation. We learn what they did in their time. The seniors learn a lot from us as well and they like hearing about our school, technology and what is going on at the school. The activities are always new and exciting. My favourite activity was when we got to design and make our own park.’
