SPA Geog and the Choir Fundraise for the ADVENT charity
Kevin was an expert at talking to customers..
First and foremost we wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and the best wishes for 2017. Before the Christmas break the newly appointed Year 11 SPA Geog Ambassadors combined with some with the School’s Choir went to Morrisons in Erith to raise money for the Advent Charity appeal. Under the expert tutelage of Ms Viner the Choir produced amazing vocals on various hymns and festive songs to the public and staff alike. The students – under the lead of the chocolate selling duo Mr Davis and Mr O’Connell – packed bags at the till for customers. Both the public and Morrisons’ staff commented of the fabulous singing of our choir and the politeness of the Ambassadors at the till. The fundraising co-ordinator from Morrisons commented that the Choir from St Paul’s Academy were ‘the best we have had this Christmas season!’. All students were a credit to the school and represented themselves as assets.
Year 7-11 members of the Choir sing hymns and Christmas songs at the entrance to Morrisons Erith.
Gareth gained many donations for his effort.
