School program pairs students with seniors and they really do develop friendships

They were born on different continents, 81 years apart. Yet, over the last three years, Emily Legate and Alice Thomas have become the closest of friends. Their monthly visits are so important, 92-year-old Thomas switched her shopping day from Tuesday to Wednesday so she wouldn’t miss seeing Emily.

“She’s a special little girl,” Thomas said, adding the 11-year-old student is like a grandchild to her. “We all need it. Us old people don’t need to grow old on their own. There’s always plenty of friends around.”

The friends are 28 students from James Mowat Elementary School. They visit the seniors’ residence once a month in the community of Fort Saskatchewan, Greater Edmonton area. Each student is paired up with a senior buddy. Together, they do all kinds of activities like making crafts, baking and playing games.
