‘Let your light shine.’ Matthew 5:16

Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Rise Voices

On Monday 29th April, we held our biggest and best Rise Voices event.

We gathered 434 Year 4 pupils from across the 26 Rise schools together to sing in harmony at the Mattioli Arena.

The pupils did their schools and families proud as they sung a series of songs linked to books and the love of reading. Each school produced a short video to share their vision, values and celebrate the books that children were enjoying. This performance was the first as an ensemble because pupils had only rehearsed in their individual schools.

The audience of over 750 family and friends were suitably impressed with amazing work of their children. One grandparent said, ‘That was wonderful. I cannot believe that was the first time they had sung together. What a tremendous effort.’

Mark Cole CEO, ‘What a night. The pupils were fantastic. The school staff worked so hard both before and during the event. As a trust, we often bring staff together but we also treasure events like this where we can show children and their families what can be achieved when we come together as a family of schools’.

Rise would also like to thank Leicestershire Music Service, for their exceptional support, guidance and the live band and the sponsors who helped contribute to the event.
