Pupils at Pope Paul Primary School in Potters Bar treated the over 50s to carol singing and Christmas cheer.

The children entertained the over 50s at Our Lady and St Vincents Church, the majority of whom were senior citizens, earlier in December, and also sang to pensioners at Potters Bar Community Club.

Headteacher Liz Heymoz said: “We are a Catholic school and it’s part of our service to others in the community.

“The children loved it. They turn up to the volunteer choir every Thursday for an hour after school.

“The lovely thing is we have got our 50th anniversary coming up next year, and some of the over 50s were parents 50 years ago to children who started at the school.
