Singing to the Seniors
On Friday 21st October, as part of the Harvest Festival Celebration, members of the Primary School Choir will be entertaining senior residents of the Victoria Emera Home, run in conjunction with the Sunnybank Association, with a number of songs, both in French and English.
This practice was put in place over twenty years ago when students started to make an annual visit to the Senior Residentsí Home at the Font de líOrme. This year, it has been decided that a more multi- cultural exchange may help to create links with the Home.
The Harvest Festival also sees a collection of dried goods and other foodstuffs, donated by generous parents, which are delivered to the home run by Les Petites Soeurs des Pauvres in Nice and which takes care of elderly citizens who are unable to be financially independent. Giving thanks for what we have and trying to bring comfort to those with less is a message that the School regularly communicates to its students.
