School seniors spread the love with Valentine's Day tunes

ROAMING quartets of senior students wearing white shirts and red ties, brandishing chocolate roses and singing passionately in not-quite perfect harmony created an extra dimension of Valentine's Day fun, colour and romance at St Patrick's College yesterday.

The college students embraced the theme of the day with gusto, selling Singagrams for $4 a pop, and Love Packs containing heart-shaped cakes, chocolates and cards to raise money for Project Compassion, which is Caritas Australia's annual humanitarian fundraising appeal.

During the school's lunch hour, seven male and female quartets serenaded their "targets" with tender delights such as Build me up Buttercup, What Makes You Beautiful, Total Eclipse of the Heart, Little Things and Ain't No Other Man.

Recipients of the Singagrams took the very public attention in their stride, singing along in some cases and getting into the spirit of the occasion.
