Students from our school braved the December weather to make sure local, older residents, could have Carols for Christmas.
Specially selected students from Years 8 and 9 took to the car park so they could perform socially distanced seasonal songs for the residents of Williams Place.
It’s not the usual venue for the choir - but this has not been a normal year and we were determined that Coronavirus wouldn’t put an end to the Carols for the community which has become a tradition.
“We would usually invite residents to come into school and enjoy our students singing for them, but obviously we couldn’t do this. We hope that singing in the car park will go some way towards helping them enjoy the festive season,” said Hannah Powell, music lead at Aureus.
Led by Elizabeth Leather from The Oxford Bach Choir, the ensemble consisted of a total of 11 students from Years 8 and 9 - they were all socially distanced for the performance.
The McCarthy and Stone retirement home is opposite the school and residents joined us from their balconies so could listen safely to the young singers.
