The photography department at Cheadle Hulme High School has been running a six-week project after school with seven elderly residents from local care homes and three people with learning difficulties, with one elderly participant being 95 years old!

They have been paired with ten of Cheadle Hulme High School’s Art Ambassadors from Year 7 to 10. They are working together to create a piece of photographic artwork based on the theme of memories.

The sessions include learning new skills such as using a camera and computer software to enhance photos as well as teaching the ambassadors about culture and the memories of the elderly.
