Singing at Speirs House

On Monday morning all the Year 5 girls and various staff members went to Speirs House, New Malden to sing to the residents there. Due to the inclement weather, Rokeby kindly lent their coach to us which we were very grateful for, as it saved us suffering soggy, wet feet for the rest of the day had we walked there! The keyboard at Speirs House had decided to 'break up' early for Christmas and was unfortunately not functioning properly, so we sang a 30 minute programme “a cappella”.  Well done girls you are real troopers to sing for so long and so well unaccompanied.  Thank you to our staff for also singing along with enthusiasm.  Let us hope that it brought some of the residents a little good cheer on such a bleak mid-Winter's day!
