After a pretty unusual year, Gloucester Public School's choir finally had a chance to shine with a festive performance at Mirrabooka Place. Thanks to the recent easing of COVID restrictions, on Thursday December 10, GPS choir members made the journey to Gloucester's new nursing home to treat the residents to a serenade of Christmas carols.

According to teacher Susie McLeod, the students walked around behind the building to the back patio area which they used as a stage.

"The students sang Christmas carols with the beautiful Bucketts as their backdrop," Susie said.

The residents enjoyed the performance from the safety of the building's lounge room with the large glass windows ensuring they could see the choir and the doors open to let the singing filter through.

"With the year we have all had, this was such a lovely treat for the students and residents alike," Susie said.

The students were also accompanied by GPS music teacher, Annette Burrows with the transport kindly donated by Newcombe Coach Lines.

Mirrabooka residents stayed COVID-safe inside the building while the children sang.
