School Hosts Festive Concert for Local Senior Citizens
The Senior School ballroom and conservatory were the venues for a very special event yesterday.
Eighteen senior citizens from care homes and sheltered housing developments in Northampton were welcomed to an afternoon of entertainment, a home baked high tea and festive celebrations at the annual Quinton House School Senior Citizens’ Christmas Concert.
Now in its fourth year, guests enjoyed a full programme of magical musical performances by children aged 5 to 16 (Year 1 to Year 11). The schedule included traditional Christmas carols and more contemporary pieces performed by music ensembles, soloist singers and duets, the Quinton Quintet and the Quinton Singers. The senior citizens, their carers, activity co-ordinators and staff joined in with familiar tunes. A wonderful atmosphere was enjoyed by all.
The guests were served a high tea with sandwiches prepared by Mr Davies and a selection of delicious cakes baked by pupils in their Food Technology classes. Our sixth formers prepared wonderful hampers generously donated by the school’s parents and staff which were distributed to all guests. We would like to thank our Quinton parents for their generosity and this sentiment was echoed loudly by our guests.
The guests had a wonderful afternoon and all commented how much they enjoyed the children’s performances and the delicious tea.
Mary Brown, Residents Support Worker at St Christopher’s Home said, ‘Residents and staff look forward to coming to the concert at Quinton House every year. It is such a pleasure to see all the children perform.’
A huge thank you to all the pupils, staff and parents involved in this tremendous, worthwhile event.
