Last Monday, 19th November, the Junior School choirs from Ormiston College once again packed their bags and went ‘on tour’ in the Redlands area. The Kinder Chorus, the Pochino Choir and OC Singers delighted young and young-at-heart with a selection of choir favourites and Christmas singing.
Students from all year levels, from Prep through to Year 6, are encouraged to join choir and this annual Christmas Tour is a highlight of their performance calendar. Returning this year to Renaissance Retirement Living at Victoria Point, the three groups performed for the residents before singing Christmas carols and sharing morning tea together. From this starting point, the groups went on to entertain shoppers at Victoria Point Shopping Centre and at Capalaba Park Shopping Centre, marking the start of the busy season with song and joy.
The day ended at Cleveland Manor with carols and chocolates.“It’s my favourite day of the year,” one student exclaimed. “I really want to come again next year!”
The College’s Junior School is planning two tour days in 2019, with a growing list of requests for the children’s choirs to visit centres and facilities in the Redlands area.
