Our residents at Grace Care Centre were treated to a visit from our friends at the Holy Catholic Primary School when they brought their pupils choir to perform for us.
There was a great turn out from our residents and staff as well as some family members visiting, and all were able to relax and enjoy some fantastic songs sung by the pupils.
What a treat these young people were; from the moment they arrived we had energy as they enjoyed their packed lunches in our garden with a little visit from the Sun to get everyone in a good mood. However, when it came time to get set up and begin their set – these energetic pupils all became quite professional and treated us all to a great set of songs and actions to go with them.
Some popular songs were performed with our residents joining in, what a great way to exercise the mind through the power of music, voice and friendship.
We were even able to have a little Q & A time where the pupils came up with some great questions that only a young person could – from ‘Who is the oldest?’ to ‘Does anyone have a girlfriend or a boyfriend?’
Following their performance, the pupils were straight in chatting and mingling with our residents over a cup of juice and treats provided.
Mr Handley (Year 5) told us that the pupils have been ‘super-excited all morning and couldn’t wait to visit.’
An AMAZING experience to see these young people interacting with our residents.
We look forward to your next visit and of course your next concert.
