RRT Choir brightens elderly residents’ day……

During the recent October school holidays, 47 girls from the Western Sydney RRT Choir visited the Mountainview Nursing Home in Penrith.

It’s part of the RRT mission to express our care and compassion to the community, including those in places of care.

The RRT choir consists of 80 girls from the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, aged between 12 and 18. They come from the Sydney, Kellyville, Penrith and Windsor local communities.

On the day of the visit, the stage was set up in the dining room of the Mountainview Nursing Home. Every song the choir sang received enthusiastic applause from the audience, with many of the residents and staff joining in to sing along with the girls. When they’d finished their set program, residents asked for an encore and of course, the girls were happy to oblige.

Following the performance, the girls handed out gift packs and chatted to residents. Many of them had such interesting life stories to tell — it was a real coming together of different generations.

Care and compassion shown to the elderly.

All the residents and staff were extremely grateful and very appreciative of the visit and the performance. Here are just a few of the comments the choir received on the day…

“Please come back again soon.”

“You have brightened my day, today.”

“Such young, happy faces with beautiful voices.”

“Amazing harmonising girls — keep it up!”

The girls thoroughly enjoyed their day out, meeting with members of the community, and they look forward to more visits to nursing homes in the future.

The RRT choir have asked us to extend their thanks and appreciation to the staff and residents of Mountainview. Also, a big thankyou to the girls’ parents and drivers, as well as the boys who assisted with the stage and the mixing, for giving up their time to help out on the day.
