Twilight sessions give teachers CPD opportunities on a wide variety of themes which relate to the Cathedral's Learning and Engagement programme for schools. They are held free of charge twice a year for School Friends. Each session includes refreshments and time to connect with colleagues from other schools as well as members of the Cathedral's Learning and Engagement team.
The next School Friends’ Twilight will be 'Singing for the Soul' on Tuesday 11 June 2019 3.45 - 5.30pm (Doors open 3.45pm to start session at 4.15pm) Many studies have shown the vast benefits singing, particularly singing together, brings to the body, mind and soul. This session, with experienced choral leader Emily Barden, will be an uplifting, restoring, fun 'singing in harmony' workshop that will let participants feel for themselves the joy and release singing can bring. As a singer herself, Emily knows how great singing can be for increasing happiness and lowering stress levels “Singing makes you feel better! It releases feel good hormones and increases energy levels. I always leave a choir session feeling more rejuvenated than when I arrived, a sentiment that I know is shared by others. Above everything, singing together is fun, and laughter is great medicine!” To register your school’s interest in taking part please contact Vicky on 01243 812986 or firstname.lastname@example.org
