Christmas Carols at the Almshouses

Today our Year 6 Chamber Choir visited the Seckford Almshouses, where they sang Christmas songs and carols to the residents. The children really enjoyed interacting with the residents and singing some of their favourite Christmas songs. All of the residents joined in with the singing, which was wonderful to see. The children were brilliant representatives for the school, performing with exuberance and confidence.
