SINCE 1989, seniors have celebrated Christmas with youngsters at Thornhill Primary School.

That was the year that Alpha De Leon wanted to do something special for Christmas as she’d just moved here.

She came up with the idea of having the Happy Gang Centre members come to

Thornhill Primary to watch the students’ Christmas concert dress rehearsal.

“It’s something nice to do for Christmas,” she said.

The seniors have watched the Christmas concerts every year since 1989, except for one year when De Leon couldn’t set it up and no one else took over.

But this year, she didn’t have to organize it at all, she was invited and got to just watch it from the audience.

This year, seniors enjoyed a lunch first in the school gym, then watched the different classes of kindergarten to Grade 3 students sing several songs, some while doing actions along to them, in their concert with the theme Our House is a Holiday House: A Holiday Musical Revue.

The revue’s musical director was Anne Hill.
