Eamonn McManus visit

01 December 2015

On Thursday, 26th November 2015, we had the privilege of welcoming Mr Eamonn McManus, Chairman of St Helens Rugby Football League Club to St Cuthbert's! 

Mr McManus was invited in to speak to boys in Yrs 10 & 11 about his own experience as a schoolboy growing up in St Helens in the 1960s. He talked about his own working class roots, and how success is all about mindset, effort and self belief. The boys and staff alike found him to be a very engaging, and inspiring speaker. 

Here are some of the quotes from the Y11 students who attended the inspirational talk:

Paul: "I learnt that if you work hard, you can achieve anything: you only get out what you put in".

Callum: "There are endless possibilities and the ones you set out for may not be the one you had in mind."

Jack: "That anything is achievable with hard work and an open mind-set."

Lewis: "very inspirational words, which makes me determined to do well."

A big thank you to Mr McManus for giving up his time to visit us.
