Students delight aged folk

THERE is no doubt grandparents always make the best cakes, the tastiest scones and the sweetest biscuits.

But there was a bit of role reversal at the Senior Citizen's Hall yesterday as Warwick High School students cooked, served and cleared morning tea for the masses.

The high school's community service group dished up some gourmet delights made by the home economics students, and the senior music class performed various pieces to entertain the oldies.

Senior Citizens president Joe Owens said having the students there was exciting for everyone.

"The oldies love interacting with the kids and because a large percentage of them are in nursing homes, they think their bed and their room is their life, but this shows them there is more to life than that," Mr Owens said.

Year 12 student Taylor Duxfield said she enjoyed hanging out with the seniors.

"My grandparents live in Brisbane so I don't get to see them very often, so this is fun," Taylor said.
