School children visit nursing home

A children’s choir from Dallimore Primary School visited Oliver House Nursing Home in Kirk Hallam yesterday.
After entertaining the residents with songs, including a favourite at the home, The White Cliffs of Dover, the children themselves were regaled with a story from 91-year-old Stephanie Minard and her visiting daughter Sandra.
Wellbeing and Activities Coordinator Carol Lawson said: “They really enjoyed the story of Albert and the Lion, and were amazed how Stephanie answered all their questions about the story.
“They thought they had come to do the entertaining but discovered it was a two-way thing.
“The residents really enjoyed the singing by the children, which was beautiful.”
Matt Gotheridge (Deputy Head) said: “It was lovely to visit Oliver House today. We’ve been practising as a choir for few weeks, and the children have all really enjoyed singing to the residents and listening to a few stories. We’re looking forward to coming back at Christmas to sing carols.”
