Holy Family School 8th Graders Visit Senior Care Facility in South Pasadena
Holy Family School (HFS) 8th graders recently visited a Senior Care facility in South Pasadena. HFS take an inter-generational approach, stemming from the idea that “friendship is ageless.” Small groups of grade school students regularly visit local facilities. They participate in art programs and interact with the elderly.
Students journal about the unique relationships and experiences they share with their aging friends who happily pass down stories of their life wisdom with unconditional love. This approach teaches that it is not in receiving but in giving that we find the greatest joy.
Holy Family School, 1301 Rollin St., South Pasadena, (626) 799-4354 or visit school.holyfamily.org.
