The Living and Learning Together project at Pool Academy has been launched with the help of some community members.
Students from Year 7, 8 and 9 will be involved with the project which will see people from the school connect with others who live in the area.
The launch event took place last Wednesday at Trevenson Parish Church, located near to the school.
The session, which lasted around an hour and a half, saw two generations making connections.
Nick Hamblin, from Pool Academy, said: “The aim of this time together was to forge bonds between two very different age groups, where both could interact around crafts, games, reading and discussions.
“We started by learning some History about the Church and local area, before going into the Hall to have an interactive session.
“The photographs show the creative fun of learning in this way, when bringing our community together.”
