School Choir items by: Central, Convent, Havelock North, Frimley, Intermediate, Mahora, Mayfair, Parkvale, Raureka,

It is with much pleasure that the Committee of the Hastings Primary Schools’ Choir presents this, its twelfth Annual Concert, to the Citizens of Hastings.

Much satisfaction can be taken in the years work. For the first time every school in Hastings is represented by its own School Choir. The Massed Choir has experienced a full and enjoyable season, and eight children have been in the Choir for four years, Moreover, the enthusiasm and regular attendance shown by members – particularly the younger children from the Contributing Schools, is commendable, Regular weekly attendance by Pakowhai and Havelock North children is most commendable.

There are many splendid choristers among the younger children and we hope that they will be encouraged to maintain a balance between cultural pursuits and sport, as they progress through our schools,

On yet another occasion we are indebted to Miss K. Coles, our energetic and inspiring conductor. Miss Coles has been actively associated with the Choir since its inception, and for the past seven years has ably filled the post of Conductor – a splendid record of untiring effort and community service.

Once again we are indebted to or Associate Members, who appear overleaf, for their financial assistance. Without their assistance the children would be denied the experience of singing before such a large audience in this theatre.

Finally, the Choir Committee notes with pleasure, the increasing interest that is evident in the work of the choir, and thanks all well-wishers accordingly.
