It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!

This week students from St Joseph the Worker Catholic Primary School students entertained our patients and staff at Auburn Hospital with their angelic voices!

More than 20 students aged between 6-12 years of age sung more than 10 familiar carols.

Auburn Hospital’s Nursing and Midwifery director Kate Murphy appreciated the students and teachers taking the time out of their day to ‘deck the wards’ with joy and carols to patients and staff.

“Auburn is a richly diverse multicultural community and Christmas is very much celebrated by our staff, patients and visitors. It brings us all together to celebrate the joy and peace of the season,” Kate said.

“Being in hospital during or leading up to Christmas is not fun for many people, which is why we want to bring smiles to patients, visitors and staff by celebrating the festive season,” Kate said.

St Joseph the Worker Catholic Primary School family educator Angela Finnane said the school visit was the students’ idea.

“We are a small school and our students are caring and have big hearts, a reflection of their parents,” Angela said.

“The students were delighted to be doing something for sick, elderly and vulnerable patients at this time of the year. They demonstrated compassion, empathy and were excited to give the patients hand-made Christmas cards.”
