CAVERSHAM Primary School students have been rehearsing for their debut performance at the Caversham Carols.
The school choir has teamed up with Eastern Districts Alliance Church and businesses, which will host the event, on Saturday, December 17 in Walter Day Park at St Leonard’s Boulevard, Dayton.
Families are invited to pack a picnic rug or enjoy a sausage sizzle from 5.30pm, when children can take part in activities including face painting, bouncy castle, animal farm and balloons.
The carols start at 7.30pm with performances from the Caversham Primary School choir and singers and musicians from the Eastern Districts Alliance Church band.
Eastern Districts Alliance Church senior pastor Russell Holmes said the families who had made the area home would find respite from the Christmas rush through an evening of carols.
“The Christmas season can be chaotic, which is why carols are a great opportunity for people to take time out, relax with each other, and reflect on its greater meaning,’’ he said.
“The birth of Jesus Christ is something people from all cultures can celebrate.’’
Entry to Caversham Carols is free and glow sticks will be handed out to each visitor, however an optional gold coin donation is welcome.
The sausage sizzle is a fundraiser for Caversham Primary P&C.
