Marian College student Anastasia Boulus combined her love of music and community service to put on a show for a group of Glenhaven retirees.
The year 11 student chose to perform at the Living Choice Retirement Village for five weeks as part of the community service project section of the youth leadership program, Max Potential.
The program runs for 22 weeks and with the assistance of her mentor, Robbie Duncan, Miss Boulus chose to bridge the gap between the youth and the elderly by providing entertainment to the retirees.
“The outcome of my community service project has been even better than what I expected,’’ she said.
‘‘The residents, as well as the youths involved, have been getting a real blast out of the whole experience.
‘‘We have enjoyed learning some good old classics that have clearly brought joy to the residents, and likewise, the residents have expressed their joy and interest in some of the more contemporary pieces we have chosen to play.”
The Max Potential program is an initiative run by the Castle Hill RSL.
The community service project’s final showcase will be next Wednesday at the club from 3pm-5pm.
