Beneficiaries' Spring Tea and Talk

On 23rd May, we hosted our third annual Spring Tea and Talk for a group of our elderly beneficiaries at Nord Anglia International School (NAIS). Seniors and students alike enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment and refreshments.

A reprisal of the NAIS spring musical, Aladdin Jr. was a massive hit. As was an interactive art project in which students and beneficiaries used outlines of their hands to create a “giving tree” displaying their own acts of kindness.

In addition to rental assistance and financial support, St. George’s Society is committed to enhancing the overall quality of life for our beneficiaries. Research shows that older adults with a fulfilling social life tend to avoid many of the physical, cognitive and emotional difficulties that seniors who are isolated encounter.* Outings and activities like the Spring Tea and Talk offers our seniors an opportunity to engage with each other as well as the children of NAIS.

I don’t have any grandchildren so it was wonderful to spend time with young people, full of life… and questions.
— Roger, age 82

We would like to thank all the children and teachers at the Nord Anglia International School who helped to create such a wonderful opportunity for our beneficiaries.
