Here at K & M Communities, we like to share with you the great things which are happening in our communities. Read on to learn more about the links being forged between the generations in Gourdon in the Gourdon Primary Senior Citizen Club.
P6 & P7 pupils from Gourdon Primary and senior citizens of the village come together to carry out intergenerational learning. The senior citizens club has been running at the school for over 6 years, there was a gap between the generations in the village so by creating this club it brings everyone together for greater understanding.
Interested, watch this short clip to learn more.
