Pupils from Ormiston Meadows Academy’s Choir have had a busy week performing a medley of festive favourites, raising £114 with a performance for commuters at Peterborough Train Station.
Pupils at the school, which is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust, also sang for residents of Beverstone Court sheltered housing complex.
At the start of the week, the choir, led by Specialist Music Teacher Mrs McEwan, joined the residents at their Christmas gathering, providing entertainment with a collection of merry tunes. They then spent Saturday morning spreading Christmas cheer for travellers at the local train station, raising over £110 in donations over the 40-minute performance.
Ormiston Meadows Academy’s Choir is open to all pupils from Years 3-6, with the group meeting every week after school to develop their singing talents. The Choir is just one of the school’s varied selection of after school clubs and enrichment opportunities.
Mrs Moore, Principal at Ormiston Meadows Academy, said:
“We were delighted to accept the invitation from Beverstone Court to perform at their Christmas gathering, as well as Peterborough train station. Our pupils are always keen to share their talents with the local community and hope their songs helped to spread some Christmas cheer.”
