Student has perfect start to winter break

Guildford Leo Club launched a Christmas celebration at Arbourside Court Senior Centre.

As HAVE many other secondary students in Surrey, I sometimes asked myself, “What was a good way to start our winter break?” TV, video games, parties and Facebook were too “ordinary” for us.

Being part of the Fraser Heights Leo Club, we and Guildford Leo Club launched our Christmas Celebration with the seniors at Arbourside Court Senior Centre in the first afternoon of winter break.

We caroled together with the seniors and performed several exciting performances, such as a magic show and electric slide dance, sharing our youth strength with the seniors.

I felt so warm inside because we actually did a good thing, and made a difference.

As one of the seniors told me, “You guys did a great job. Thank you for bringing out the liveliness and Christmas spirit.”

Christmas was for everyone, so was winter break.

Spending a day with the seniors was such a good way to start our winter break.

Therefore, do not be selfish, share your winter break with the people around you, and you will receive more than you give.
