Choir visits to Nursing Homes

A huge congratulations to the school Choir for their thoroughly entertaining performances today at 4 different Nursing Homes in the areas of Westmeadows, Tullamarine, Essendon and Meadow Heights. The Residents and Staff of the homes thanked the students for their wonderful singing. They sang some familiar songs such as ‘Waltzing Matilda’, ‘Lean on Me’, ‘Botany Bay’ and ‘Colour my World’. The choir students who attended consisted of children from Years 2 to 6. They practised every week during Friday lunchtimes. Their next performance will be at the September School Concert. Lots more practice, but loving it!
