Our choir hit the right notes with community

Voices of AureusThe festive season got off to a flying start when our school choir joined residents from Williams Place for a special Christmas event organised by developers McCarthy & Stone.

Our students gave a lovely rendition of favourite festive songs and traditional Carols after being invited to provide entertainment for the residents of the Williams Place Retirement, Living Plus development.

Visitors also enjoyed mince pies and mulled wine at the free event which was held to reflect the traditional gathering of friends and family over the festive season.

We were delighted to have been invited to take part and The Voices of Aureus choir sang some of their favourite songs; ‘We are Aureus’ and ‘Jingle Bells’, among them. Our students really enjoyed spending time talking to the residents and sharing a mince pie with them, and we wish them all a merry Christmas."

The partnership between McCarthy & Stone and our school has gone from strength-to-strength, as, earlier this year, a group of pupils and residents at Williams Place designed and created three large mosaics based on our motto, ‘Nurturing Hearts and Minds’, with the help of local artist, Clare Goodall. 

The mosaics were designed to reflect our values, representing the importance of nurturing the hearts and minds of the whole child, and they are now on show pride of place on the front of the school.  

Geoff Bates, Head of Marketing at McCarthy & Stone South, said: “I’d like to thank the pupils from Aureus School for their brilliant performance and helping to get our festive season off to a fantastic start!

“We have really enjoyed working together with Aureus School over the last year. Partnerships such as this give us the chance to showcase the sense of companionship all retirees can enjoy here at Williams Place.”
