Students from Kings College spread some Christmas cheer last month by delighting residents at the Callistemon Court Aged Person units with some carols.

Kindergarten and pre-primary students painted their own Christmas shirts and made their own decorations, including headbands and bells, to look the part.

In addition to singing a variety of carols, students delivered handmade gifts to delighted residents.

Kindergarten teacher Lisa Smith said students had spent a whole term practising songs and were excited to sing them to an audience.

“We wanted to teach the students how they can be a blessing to others,” she said.

“It doesn’t matter how small you are, you can be a blessing to someone else.”
