Together they've had 306 birthday cakes (soon to be 307), have lived in Canberra for 136 years and share a lifelong musical passion.
Meet three of Canberra's oldest women.
Students from St Vincent's Primary in Aranda visited neighbouring Bupa Aged Care on Thursday to celebrate the 102nd birthday of new resident Freda Bishop
The celebration included students singing classics such as The Sound of Music tracks, while Freda watched on with friends and family ... but with more than 30 grandchildren and great grandchildren, not all could make it.
Two 10-year old students, Vienna Graham and Delany Connolly, hope they'll make it to Freda's age, but not before they knock a few goals off the bucket list.
"I want to help the kids in Cambodia," Vienna said.
"I love horses, so I want to go into the bush on a horse camp with my friends," Delany explained.
Delany said she was excited to perform the songs they had been working on for weeks because she knew Freda "likes kids and singing".
And she's right, because Freda sang at her children's weddings and at her 100th birthday.
Her daughter, Helen, said Freda's secret to a long life was having an "indomitable spirit".
"She has always demanded the best for herself, and got the best for herself," she said.
Another of Canberra's centenarian's, 105-year-old Ellen Heath, says the key to reaching the 100 mark is giving up smoking and drinking – although she enjoys the occasional white wine and lemonade – and putting mind over matter.
"I just assume I'll live a long time," she said.
She enjoys "sleeping, singing, dancing ... playing the piano and going to mass", and proved she can still sing My Little Sunshine exceptionally well.
Dorothy Rafferty is the youngest of the wise trio, turning the big 100 on September 25.
Her secret? Stress-heads, listen up.
"Not worrying about my health and being happy. People worry about this, that and the other, but I couldn't care less," she said.
"As long as I have music, I'm happy."
She writes pantomimes for the centre's choir and drama group and plays the piano and organ for church services.
Her impressive musical ability is crucial to the aged care's functions, Southern Cross Care's Peter Stevenson said.
Ellen and Dorothy agreed the internet is incredible. Ellen thinks computers are "smashing" and Dorothy is impressed by Peter's iPad, "the big googly box".
So it seems "follow your heart, stress less and never stop doing what you love" are the secrets to a long, happy life.
And if you get there, remember age is just a number.
