Chanukah Celebrations

ChoirThis month members of the Calderwood Lodge School Choir have been busy supporting Chanukah celebrations throughout the community.  The choir performed in the whole school Chanukah assembly in front of pupils, parents and member of Westacres Care Home.  They were then delighted to perform at the candle lighting ceremony held in school for the Glasgow Community Chanukah Celebration. They performed to over 450 guests, and some of them even managed a selfie with the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.  They then visited Jewish care to perform to a delighted group of older members from the community.  The children sang a selection of Chanukah songs and then spent time chatting with the group.  Many of the members commented on how well the children performed, how smart they looked in their uniforms, and how well they behaved.  It was lovely to hear that our visit was the highlight of Chanukah for many of the guests there.  Special mention must go to Gabby Rose who had staff and visitors (and school staff) in tears with her wonderful performance of ‘I Dreamed a Dream’.  A big well done and thank you to all members of the choir.
