Carol Singers Spread Christmas Cheer in the Community

December 2019

Carol singers entertained elderly residents in two of our local nursing homes.

Six of our Year 8 students have been spreading some Christmas cheer by singing carols to elderly residents in two of our local care homes and to local shoppers.

The choir members rehearsed each lunch time with Music Teacher, Mr Heddle, to perfect a selection of traditional hymns and popular festive tunes, which they performed to residents at Eden House and Sandringham care homes. The group performed hymns including ‘We Three Kings’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘O Come All Ye faithful’, and pop songs such as Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas is you’; this made sure that there was something for everyone to enjoy. Residents enjoyed singing along with our students and even requested an encore!

The choir also performed for Christmas shoppers at Asda and Morrisons, where staff and customers joined in with their cheerful voices. It was a great experience for our students; not only did they have real audiences to perform to, but they also enjoyed being able to give something back to the community.
