Peter Stobart, Director of the Cork Diocesan Church Music Scheme was the guest at Midleton College on Monday 11th February.
He came to put first and second year students through their hymn singing paces. His energetic style and infectious enthusiasm soon got even the most reluctant students joining in.
Hymn singing in assembly is an integral part of almost every day at Midleton College, and has even been known to happen at rugby matches! However, sometimes students can be self conscious about singing and Peter’s visit allowed them to lose their shyness and join in with gusto.
The Rev. Andrew Orr, Midleton College chaplain, said:
It was a pleasure to have Peter with us and see how quickly he was able improve our singing. We look forward to even more energetic participation at assembly and to having Peter back to practice with older years
