Harleston Sancroft Academy add an eggs-tra special dimension to our Easter Open Day in Harleston.  

The local school choir went down a treat with homeowners and visitors at Waveney Place retirement village in Norfolk for the over 60s 

Forty children from Harleston Sancroft Academy sang a selection of popular hymns and feel-good melodies for homeowners and their guests from this Retirement Living complex which features a mix of apartments, bungalows and coach houses. 

Guest were also treated to an extravagant bounty of delicious chocolates and confectionary, while the school children were gifted Easter eggs as a special thank you for their fantastic performance. 

David Meachem, Divisional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone said: “Following the success of Harleston Sancroft Academy’s performance at Waveney Place last Christmas, we were keen to invite the children once again to sing some well-known songs for our homeowners. Opportunities such as these help us to foster intergenerational connections in the communities close to our developments, which is a key focus at McCarthy Stone. Our homeowners and guests thoroughly enjoyed the performance by the school choir, as did the McCarthy Stone team.” 

Primary Phase Music Lead at Harleston Sancroft Academy, Sarah Ablett comments: “The children were incredibly excited to sing for the second time at Waveney Place and worked really hard to deliver yet another brilliant performance. The audience gave a fantastic reception, which is a testament to the children’s talent.”
