Stu­dents share songs for Mother’s Day

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

The Sa­cred Heart Pri­mary School Choir has a long-stand­ing tra­di­tion of singing and en­ter­tain­ing the el­derly at the St Cuth­bert’s ‘Friendlies’ Mother’s Day gath­er­ing each year.

The choir sang beau­ti­fully led by Christine Cussen and the stu­dents then handed out chrysan­the­mums to all those who at­tended.

“We re­ally love hav­ing this re­la­tion­ship with our com­mu­nity,” Mrs Cussen said.

“It’s so heart-warm­ing to see the joy shared on both side. Spe­cial thanks to Carol Hen­der­son who co-or­di­nates this event.”

The Friendlies program has been run­ning for 31 years of­fer­ing an early af­ter­noon get to­gether with a short de­vo­tional ser­vice fol­lowed by en­ter­tain­ment from vol­un­teers for the el­derly at­ten­dees, fol­lowed by af­ter­noon tea, in the St Cuth­bert’s Hall.

There is no cost to at­tend and af­ter­noon tea is pro­vided by the St Cuth­bert’s ladies.

The Friendlies program pro­vides a great op­por­tu­nity for el­derly peo­ple to catch up in a wel­com­ing, safe en­vi­ron­ment with su­per­vi­sion from car­ers if re­quired.

The next Friendlies get to­gether will be held on Thurs­day, June 8 at 1.30pm.

Stu­dents en­joy the op­por­tu­nity to en­ter­tain the Friendlies guests and share a con­ver­sa­tion and af­ter­noon tea.
