Pupils praised by care home after work experience week

ELDERLY residents have expressed their gratitude to two school pupils after a week working at their care home for work experience.

15-year-olds Hannah Pears and Molly Ratcliff supported staff and spent time with residents living at Pelton Grange Care Home, in Pelton, County Durham.

The pupils from North Durham Academy, in Stanley, provided support with the tea trolley and dining, general housekeeping and social activities.

Hannah said: “I had a great week. I had a lot of fun listening to the stories of the residents.”

Molly added: “I never thought about what it was like in a care home. It was nice to see the residents had so much choice.”Chris, Hannah and Molly with their work experience week awards

Resident Yo Barras, 96, said: “It was lovely to have such lively young girls in the building. They’ve been such a help and I’d like to say thank you on behalf of everyone here.”

After completing their work experience, home manager Chris Hogan-Hind presented the girls with certificates as a box of chocolates each to say thank you.
He said: “Hannah and Molly have been absolute stars during their work experience week. Such a help to the staff and the residents have all loved chatting to them.

“Working with North Durham Academy, we were delighted to give the pupils a chance to experience working in a care home.

“We’re always looking to partner with local schools, colleges and other organisations, to support each other where possible.”
