Choir at the Star and Garter Nursing Home

4 December 2009

St Thomas More Catholic Primary School Choir was asked to sing at the Star and Garter Nursing Home Solihull before Christmas. The Nursing Home had been unable to find a choir to sing for them. We were delighted to be able to go and bring the residents some Christmas cheer.

The concert was dedicated to Mary Cottrell a resident who had just died. The children sang a selection of Christmas Carols and songs plus a couple of World War songs.

Afterwards the children enjoyed talking with the residents and wishing them a very Happy Christmas.

Staff and children enjoyed a beautiful lunch before we left to go back to school. We received several letters of thanks for our lovely pupils and the outstanding concert. The children sang beautifully and are a real credit to the school.
