"The Diocese of Manchester's Board of Education formally endorses the work of iSingPOP. We have seen evidence in our primary schools and parishes of the spiritual impact of the project. It also supports and develops church/school links and helps the church reach out into its local community. We strongly endorse this initiative and encourage schools and parishes to engage positively with it."
Canon Maurice Smith CB / Director of Education, Manchester Diocese.
"How wonderful to see the church, school and community partnership in action. I watched the faces of the children and of the adults - they were totally involved, moving and singing along with the songs clearly based on Christian values. The energy and enthusiasm was infectious. I can thoroughly recommend this project!"
Ann Mundy / Director Of Education, Worcester Diocese.
"Seeing the cathedral full of children singing with confidence, enthusiasm and joy was amazing. Thank you for inspiring so many of our schools and children to find their voices and sing."
Canon Helena Arnold / Head Of Education, Gloucester Diocese.
“The whole school community thoroughly enjoyed iSingPOP - from the beginning through to the spectacular concert at the end. The children learnt the songs and took part with great enthusiasm and effort and the staff were singing and dancing along too. Parents were very positive about the concert at the church which was a wonderful finish to the project. I would heartily recommend iSingPOP to other schools and churches, it’s been a great experience for all!”
James Twigg / Headteacher, Lane End Primary School, Cheadle Hulme
“iSingPOP, what a fantastic experience for the children and staff alike. No one could have imagined the advantages we gained from all working together. Some of the best memories will be seeing our less confident singers on stage having the time of their lives. These songs will stay alive within school for a very long time.”
Rob Dean – Headteacher, St Thomas’ Primary School, Westhoughton
