Philipsburg – Sounds of children singing Christmas carols brightened the atmosphere at the St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) on December 11th, 2018. A group of 4thgrade students of the Asha Stevens Hillside Christian School brought the festive spirit to the hospital.
The children treated staff and patients of the hospital to classic Christmas carols such as Jingle bells, Noel and Silent Night. The group was accompanied by their own, very talented drummer.
SMMC General Director Kees Klarenbeek appreciated the students and teachers taking the time out of their day to ‘deck the wards’ with joy and carols for patients and staff of the hospital to enjoy. “Christmas is very much celebrated by our staff, patients and visitors. It brings us all together to celebrate the joy and peace of the holiday season,” Mr. Klarenbeek said. “SMMC thanks the students for their wonderful rendition of these songs and the warmth of the holidays that they have brought to the hospital”.
