|“SINGERS FOR A CAUSE” GROUP FOR MARIANOPOLIS TO PERFORM AT THE MACKAY CENTRE SCHOOL IN NDG|
MONTREAL, APRIL 4, 2016 – The Mackay Centre School (3500 Decarie) in NDG will receive a visit from “Singers for a Cause,” a group of students at nearby Marianopolis College in Westmount, on Thursday, April 7 (1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.).
Meeting weekly, group members put together concerts for various charitable purposes. Past performances have taken place at hospitals, geriatric facilities, community centers and at school events and fundraisers. The upcoming concert at the Mackay Centre School will engage the young students with some audience participation, as the group sings current pop and Disney tunes, including songs from everyone’s recent favourite Disney film: Frozen!
The Mackay Centre School educates children with physical disabilities, the deaf and students with communication disorders. Sharing the premises with them is the Philip.E. Layton School, which services the blind and/or physically handicapped and /or intellectually handicapped. There are also a number of students each year who take part in the reverse integration program. These students from mainstream schools apply for a one year opportunity to learn alongside others with special needs.
