Students bring Joy to the Community

During the second last week of term a group of students toured the area bringing joy to sheltered accommodations. A Churchill Tradition is to visit local senior citizens and sing carols and Christmas songs. This year proved to be the best ever, as a group of students visited Charlton Court in BattleHill to sing for residents and staff, then off to Swan Lodge in Howdon to repeat their repertoire.

Later that week they ventured to Windsor Drive singing such classic carols as ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Away in a Manger’. From there they visited Windsor Court in Wallsend with ‘Let it Snow’, ‘Winter Wonderland’ and ‘White Christmas’ making up some of the timeless songs. Finally it was back to Howdon to ‘Hunter Hall’ with the set including ‘Frosty the Snowman’, ‘Let it Go’ and a Churchill favourite ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’.

“It is always a joy to bring students to places within their own community because we believe that community links are really important in developing young people who, in the future, can shape their community. And what better time than at Christmas” Mr Jennings, CCC Ethos and Culture
