S6 pupils from Monifieth High School worked together with patients from Macmillan Day Care Unit in Dundee to create ‘Christmas Wishes’ tree decorations.
The youngsters were welcomed into the unit to learn about palliative care and worked closely with patients to make the decorations, which were put on two Christmas trees, one in the Day Care Unit and one in Roxburghe House. Patients and visitors were also able to take decorations for their trees at home.
The pupils and patients were supported by Monifieth High School Home Economics teacher Amber Reid and staff at Macmillan Day Care Unit.
The project was well received by patients and pupils alike and helped create links with community resources and young people, to promote the Specialist Palliative Care Service in Dundee.
