School ensemble steals the show

The Arcare Helensvale St James community were treated to a morning of entertainment when students from Daramalan College paid a visit.

The students were on an excursion from their home town of Canberra and had made the journey to Queensland to do a couple of performances and of course head down to the theme parks.

The junior string ensemble was up first and played a few tunes for all of the clients to enjoy.

The show was a mix of old and new with Ed Sheeran and Elton John songs on the set list.

The choir performed a few tunes that were a winner at a recent eisteddfod competition in Wagga Wagga and second place in the NSW college competition.

The performance was also a winner with clients giving rave reviews.

Nita said, ‘That was just breath taking! I thoroughly enjoyed it.’

While Adelea remarked that the music was too good to miss saying, ‘I don’t come out of my room very much these days, but I wanted to come today when I heard them singing the African song.’

After their performances the students were keen to have a yarn and mingle with the clients before heading over to Movie World for the afternoon.
