The event marked the 50th Anniversary of the national charity solely dedicated to tackling loneliness and social isolation amongst older people, through regular face-to-face contact.
The Firs School is one of three groups in Chester that set up and runs monthly tea parties, organised and hosted by parents, staff and pupils from school.
The Firs School choir, some of who have have since moved on to secondary school, entertained guests in the Long Room as they arrived.
Guests then moved into the Wolf Room for dinner and speeches delivered by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cheshire, David Briggs, and former Firs student Ffion Demnitz.
Ffion, the youngest volunteer in The Firs Contact the Elderly group, spoke with confidence and clarity about the pleasure she takes in helping with the monthly tea parties and the relationships that develop between her and the elderly members of the group.
Headteacher Lucy Davies said: “We really value the relationships that have been built between the pupils and the guests of our monthly tea parties. We pride ourselves on teaching our pupils about social responsibility and the role they can play not only at the school but in their local community.”
