I think it's a great idea! Could really lift spirits in these 'interesting times'......
I was in the choir in my old school we used to a mixture of pop songs (Take That etc) and hymns. I really enjoyed it!
Great idea! We have staff choir in our school. Only manage about 30 mins a week at lunch but it is a real stress buster. Everyone is welcome, office staff, support assistants. We vary from 20 to 35 staff depending on time of year. we all really enjoy it - a really sociable 30 mins!
We had a staff and pupil choir at school - it's a great way to let off steam and get to know folk at lunchtimes out of the usual school environment. We always performed athe the Christmas concert, but when the staff member who did it retired, no one else took it on. I miss it loads. It was great fun and the music teacher who ran it was so funny we were often in stitches!
I would love to be part of a staff choir. What fun!!!! :-)
It would make a nice change for teachers to be singing from the same song sheet! :-)
Used to sing in our staff choir until a couple of years ago. Great for relaxing with colleagues and taking your mind off work for a bit. Also a great team building exercise as a quick look at any of these recent "convicts/ military wives learn to sing in a choir" progs on telly show. Great for staff solidarity and morale. I attended a retirement do a few years ago and the staff choir sang "Sunshine on Leith" for the retiree. A worthy tribute, even if he does support the wrong team!
Sounds like a great idea. We used to do a Christmas Choir until we moved premises and we can't all meet up regularly.
