They also provided the entertainment for the afternoon.
Students involved in the event were Jayden Fitzgibbon, Bethan Lewis, Mehdi Ajami, Michael Sheehy, Josie Hicks, Ruby Clark, Josh Beaumont, Frances Stone, Olivia Collins, Hannah Mumford, Imani Looby, Lauren McInerny, Michael Trowse, Sydney Michaud, Emily Cundale, Darrel Williams, Neo Jacobs and Henry Warnock.
Michele Kingsley, PA to Judith Ball, the school's Head of Student Services, said: "It was wonderful to see how much the OAPs look forward to the event. For some of the guests it was one of their few outings over Christmas.
"Our guests were even up dancing and singing along with the music. The tea was flowing, and thanks to Janice Peckham (food technician) and Nicola Giles (food tech teacher)so were the mince pies and sausage rolls.
"The highlight of the afternoon was the Mannequin Challenge! Huge thanks to our amazing Year 12 and Year 13 students for making the event such a huge success."
