St John Greene, better known as ‘Singe’ and author of ‘Mum’s List’ delivered an inspirational talk to students from seven local Sixth Forms at Gordano School on March 22nd.
Mum's List is a heart-warming true life story of Singe and Kate Greene, whose lives were turned upside down when Kate was diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer. Over her last few months she created her list: writing her thoughts and memories down to help the man she loved create the best life possible for their two sons after she is gone.
Speaking to Year 12 and 13 students representing their school’s student leadership teams, Singe advised them to seize every opportunity and to make the most of life. The students later collaborated to discuss leadership strategies and to share ideas about study and event management.
Jeanne Fairs, Head of Sixth Form, said: "Singe is very much a local leader; he lives in Clevedon, his wife was a student at Gordano school and he once worked as a life guard at Churchill School sports centre. The students were very engaged with his advice and he provided a springboard for a very productive afternoon of collaboration."
