Gospel Choir

The Gospel Choir began last academic year when the Chaplaincy team were introduced to a very special lady called Penny Steade. Penny's vision of launching a successful gospel choir has come to fruition. Tirelessly, the gospel choir meet every week to practice, practice, practice! The spectacular 50 Year Celebration Mass is viewed as the true launch of the All Saints Gospel Choir. Kindly some of the adults from our own community came to join us on the day and what a performance they all gave! All the choir members have shown enthusiasm and determination. They are all proud of their achievement so far. Now the pressure is on to attract more students to the choir and to build on their success and the new recruits are rolling in especially from our new year 7 pupils. Lets Meet Penny....!
