As usual, Hilary surprised the students with a little treat which included a brisk walk to the local sweet shop where we were pumped up with Christmas spirit and a little sugar to boot. Upon arrival at the retirement home, the choir began singing in full force. With our elders tapping and clapping, we completed a full rendition and ended to a nice round of applause from the audience. A few volunteers were pulled from the choir (Hilary can be quite persuasive at times) our students introduced themselves in French including their country of origin, which the seniors enjoyed a lot.
This was a very special event for the IBS students to become involved in and hopefully it will become a regular feature for sharing holiday cheer.
