STUDENTS from the Orange MET School visited three aged care facilities in Orange on Friday to share the Christmas spirit.

A choir of 33 students from the school performed Christmas songs for residents at Uniting Wontama, Gosling Creek Aged Care and Calare Aged Care throughout the day.

The school is part of the Lachlan Macquarie Campus and head of campus David Scott applauded the student’s effort and contribution to the community.

“It’s for older folk and service for the community,” Mr Scott said.

“The kids are very community minded.”

The school’s 2016 school captain Abbey Sandeman and 2017 capatin Marshall Sandeman both took part in the performances.

Marshall said the choir has been performing at aged care facilities in Orange for the past two years and were well received at their shows on Friday.

“We did two this morning and during the lunch break we had Uniting Parkwood call us and ask us to go there as well,” Abbey said.
