YOUNGSTERS from local primary schools having been doing their bit to raise festive spirits by using their vocal talents to provide musical merriment.

Singers from Teignmouth Primary School have been out and about raising festive spirits in the town.

Pupils from the school’s choir were invited to sing Christmas songs at Teignmouth Library and Croft Lodge Care Home.

The children sang an array of festive songs, much to the delight of the library visitors and the residents of Croft Lodge.

There was even time for the choir to sing a special happy birthday to one of the residents of Croft Lodge who was celebrating her 93rd birthday.

A school spokesman said: ‘The school is really enjoying being part of the local community and would urge any community projects to make contact with the school should any further community projects arise.’

The children also performed in front of two packed audiences to showcase their musical skills.

The Key Stage 2 choir from St. Michael’s CE Primary School has been out in the local community performing for residents.

They have sung at Tesco, Penns Mount Residential Home and Greenhill Residential Home.

Some of the residents joined in with the singing and one couple were up on their feet dancing.

Hannah Bray, music and choir lead and Year 6 teacher, said: ‘Afterwards, the staff contacted us to say the residents and staff thoroughly enjoyed it.

‘It’s lovely for the children to be back out performing in the local community this Christmas.’
