Saturday, 10 December 2016


On Saturday evening at 6.37 p.m.  at the Toll Stadium 33 choir members lead the carols at the Christmas Festival. The students sang their hearts out to a crowded audience of on lookers and participants.  

The students ‘glowed’ and ‘shone’ after enjoying the kindness of the Whangarei District Council which again provided tasty pizza for all to eat and rooms for the choir to gather in.

They then donned Santa hats adorned with sparkling & shining red, blue, green and gold coloured tinsel to ready themselves for their momentous performance.  

How special this evening was. The choir sang 6 carols including, ‘Medley’, ‘Grandma Got Run over By A Reindeer’, ‘Little Drummer Boy’, ‘Away in A Manger’, ‘Silent Night’ and last but not least ‘Rudolph the red-Nosed Reindeer’ which was sang with Santa.

They smiled, they sang loud and they moved energetically to the incandescent, throbbing beats of cool sounding music.

Chloe-Mae Mostert did an excellent job of leading the actions for the choir to follow. Mrs Dobbs and I stood by  proudly as the children sang.

This will be a moment in time when all will remember the awesome time they had on Saturday evening the 10th December at the Toll Stadium in 2016.

A special thanks to all the parents and staff who made the evening a successful and enjoyable one by turning up to support and cheer on our great choir..
