Kwinana kids share Christmas joy
The sound of Christmas carols filled Callistemon Court Retirement Village on Wednesday when Kwinana Christian School students stopped by to spread some festive cheer.
The school's kindergarten students dressed up as elves and reindeers and sang five carols for the residents, before handing out handmade Christmas tree decorations and candy canes to their new friends.
School chaplain and education assistant Carol Sua said the event was to teach students the importance of giving back to the community.
"As a school, we are encouraging our students to be generous," she said.
"We thought a visit to the elderly residents would be perfect and we are hoping to make this an annual event."
Village residents Joseph and Betty Britt said the visit was fantastic.
"I've said they have to come back next year," Mrs Britt said.
"It is just so nice to have the children here and watch them perform; they even made us special presents.
"We really appreciate it and the teachers."
Mrs Sua said the school had been involved in a range of community activities including picking up rubbish at surrounding parks, helping to stack the books at the Darius Wells Library and Resource Centre, and setting up the town square games on a Thursday.
