Connecting Through Music

It was an empowering experience for both the Griffyndor class (Year 3 & 4) and the residents of the Little Sisters of the Poor to share in music making today.

The children played a half hour set on ukulele for the audience, singing songs in Nyoongar and songs that the residents could sing along to, including “Singing in the Rain” and “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” One of the residents stood up at the end of the performance and 

remarked that he could tell how much the children enjoyed playing, and thanked them for the joy they had brought.

The students can be proud of the self-discipline they displayed, as they waited for the audience to arrive, and then the respect and humanity that was evident as they engaged with the residents after the performance whilst sharing morning tea.

We intend to become much more regular visitors to our friends across the road!
