The first Singers for Schools Concert raised $1,800 for Russell School in Canons Creek. This money was used to purchase more plants for the schools veggie garden and to purchase bread for the sandwiches that are made at school for the children who needed them. These sandwiches are supplemented with fruit provided by the Ministry of Education.

We visited the school on three occasions. Once to once to meet with the principal, Sose Annadelle, Secondly to hear the choir and have our photo taken for the newspaper with a group of children, and finally to donate the funds raised. All occasions were very special and we were so impressed with the moral of the teachers and pupils alike not to mention the beautiful singing. We were heartened by the schools mission statement which is HEART. This stands for Honesty, empathy, aroha, respect and teamwork. The school is named after General Russell so the children have a special relationship with the local RSA in celebrating Armistice day with a special service held at the schools flagpole.
