Congratulations to the Cardinal Wiseman students who performed on Sunday at the Leamington Peace Festival with students from Southam College and Grace Academy. A special thank you to Mrs McDermott Cole who has worked to make sure that all sixteen students could get to Leamington and to the rehearsal on Saturday. What fantastic talent we have in school and it was a pleasure to listen to them perform a range of songs including “Amazing Grace”, and “Ain’t no Mountain High Enough”
Not all of us are as talented at singing but thanks to the generosity of staff and students we have now installed a memorial for Mr Ross created by a professional artist, Solina Somalya, who has worked with a group of staff and students.
It takes a positive attitude or hope and commitment to serve , courage to sing to an audience who may or may not like you, faith to put the energy into the hard work it takes to develop talents or to serve the community.
Well done everybody.
