Local students entertain community

Hays Education, the leading recruiting expert, helped the local community come together by arranging for 30 pupils from Oldmixon Primary School, in Weston-Super-Mare, to present a play to the residents of Uphill Grange Nursing Home as part of their community cohesion programme.

Community cohesion is a government agenda that aims to create a sense of belonging for all. It focuses on developing strong and positive relationships between people from different backgrounds in the work place, in schools and within neighbourhoods.

Robert Bennett, Regional Business Manager at Hays Education, said: “We feel that community cohesion is important, so we are pleased to help support the coming together of the local community. It was great to see the children perform their play, they only had two weeks to prepare and learn their lines, but they performed brilliantly and the residents at Uphill Nursing Home thoroughly enjoyed the show.”
