Brisbane Students Brighten Nursing Home Residents’ Day

Plymouth Brethren Rapid Relief Team

On Monday 28th July, the Brisbane Rapid Relief Team junior choir (students from Agnew School Brisbane’s Vocal Group) travelled to the E.M. Tooth Memorial Home, to perform. The residents welcomed them with great excitement. After a short introduction, the choral group performed their repertoire. The first performance was Agnew School’s Song, an original composition by the students, named Learning to Learn (the school Motto). With many more hymns and inspiring songs following, 45 minutes quickly disappeared.

    It’s brilliant – well done. I think it’s great to cheer up older people, it’s something small that we can do and yet it means tons to them.
    Well done.

    1. Stop & Stare”

      This town is colder now, I think it’s sick of us
      It’s time to make our move, I’m shaking off the rust
      I’ve got my heart set on anywhere but here
      I’m staring down myself, counting up the years

      Steady hands, just take the wheel…
      And every glance is killing me
      Time to make one last appeal… for the life I lead

      Stop and stare
      I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
      Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
      But I’ve become what I can’t be
      Stop and stare
      You start to wonder why you’re here not there
      And you’d give anything to get what’s fair
      But fair ain’t what you really need

      They’re trying to come back, all my senses push
      Untie the weight bags, I never thought I could…

      Steady feet, don’t fail me now
      Gonna run till you can’t walk
      Something pulls my focus out
      And I’m standing down…

      Stop and stare
      I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
      Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
      But I’ve become what I can’t be
      Stop and stare
      You start to wonder why you’re here not there
      And you’d give anything to get what’s fair
      But fair ain’t what you really need

      Steady feet, don’t fail me now
      Gonna run till you can’t walk
      Something pulls my focus out
      And I’m standing down…

      Stop and stare
      I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
      Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
      But I’ve become what I can’t be
      Stop and stare

  14. Rachel says:

    Fantastic to see young people brightening up the elderly! You would’ve made their day!

  15. sally says:

    not bad not bad, a tad out here and there but good for a few students….

    1. :-? says:

      Yeah…I was thinking that too… or is it just the bad recording?

    2. Very Impressed!! says:

      I think it is just a variation to the tunes, maybe how the teacher knows them. LOVE THE WHOLE THING! Especially the inclusion of so many male voices and the parts – this really gives it that ‘extra bit’. Congratulations Agnew Students, and the teacher too. We are all very impressed!

    3. Anonymous says:

      the recording is slightly dodgy cos it sounded great in real life

  16. music lover says:

    good job Brisbane RRT!! I really like the “Learning to Learn” song…how long did it take you to write the song? it is really good!
