Schoolchildren hit high notes at Christmas concert

Children from a Halifax school brought some holiday cheer to elderly tenants when they put on a Christmas concert for them.

Pupils from Ash Green Primary visited Clement Court, one of our housing with care schemes in Central Halifax, last week to perform some festive favourites.

Paula Lord, Extra Care Scheme Manager, said: “The tenants love having the children visit, especially at Christmas as it is such a magical time for the children.

“It helps those who don’t have any grandchildren or who live away to experience the excitement shown by the children at this time of year.

“It also breaks down generational barriers by allowing the tenants and children to share their experiences of Christmas and gain a better understanding of how Christmas has changed over the years.”

Clement Court resident Vera Tordoff said: “The children were fantastic and well behaved. It was lovely to see them all dressed up in their Santa hats. I do enjoy listening to them. It makes it feel like Christmas.”   

Ash Green Headteacher Mungo Sheppard added: “We have been delighted to build links with Clement Court bringing together younger and older members of our community. The tenants came to watch our production of ‘Oliver’ at Viaduct Theatre in June and will be attending our KS1 Nativity this week. Hopefully, the Christmas carols brought lots of cheer at Clement Court.”
