Students from Christ-King Catholic School added a touch of the holidays to three seniors residences in Stettler on Thursday, Dec. 18.

The students and staff went on their annual carol sing that morning, sharing the songs of the season with residents and inviting them to join in on the more familiar tunes.

Teacher Jaclyn Delhommeau said the short carolling tour has become a regular Christmas tradition for the school, with the entire student body — more than 100 kids — taking part.

“I don’t know who likes it more, the teachers, the kids or the seniors,” said Delhommeau.

The students divided into two groups, with the first visiting Heart Haven Lodge and the second visiting Points West. The singers were accompanied on the piano by Delhommeau and by Evelyn Strandquist.

Later, the two groups joined together for a performance at Willow Creek Lodge, after which cookies and juice were served.
