Visit from the Wanneroo Civic Choir

Today we had a visit at St Stephen’s School Carramar from the Wanneroo Civic Choir. They performed to all of the children in Years PP-6 and featured our very own staff member from Pre – Primary in Debbie Randell as she is a member of this group.  It was awesome as they sang songs together with our children, it was rewarding for our students and the choir alike!
