A GROUP of Morpeth school students became teachers to help bridge the generation gap between teenagers and senior citizens.

The Sixth Formers at King Edward VI School – Freddie Bowles, Calvin Willis, Will Garman, Luke Robson, Adam Pringle and Dillon Old – led a range of IT sessions which enabled a number of Morpeth U3A members to improve their computer knowledge and skills.

Luke said: “It was a great experience to teach people who are from a completely different generation.”

Head of ICT at KEVI, Stuart Fraser, added: “We hope this is the start of an on-going partnership.”
