The Super Power Agency was excited to work with S2 students from Broughton High School on this intergenerational pen pals project. With the theme of learning about others, the students wrote to members and residents of elder care facilities in the area (LifeCare and Haugh House/Mansfield Care). For several weeks, the pen pals corresponded, learning about each others lives, hopes and dreams. At the end of the project, we organised and filmed 'The Big Meet,' a chance for the pen pals to meet each other face to face. It was a wonderful afternoon of sharing with new friendships formed.
The book, Through the Years: Connecting Present and Past, will be published in May!
