A SCHOOL has appealed for people aged 65 and over to share their 'life experience' with pupils.

Oxford Academy will host a coffee morning on March 27 to encourage people to get involved in its 'Old School' project.

The project sees older people paired with students to take part in activities including playing games, learning computer skills and cooking.

Based on similar initiatives in the United States, Old School is hoped to benefit both the pupil and the older person.

The event is at the school from 10am.
