21st April 2015 - St Paul’s School, Cardinal Nichols’ Visit and Planet eStream
St Paul’s School in Leicester hosted a very special visitor as part of their official opening, and used their Planet eStream system to make the occasion accessible to all.
His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, visited the school on 23rd March 2015 to perform the official opening of the school following their BSF project. The building project saw the school get a new block hosting a: Learning Resource Centre, dedicated Sixth Form provision, a new science faculty and a new theatre space.
A liturgy, led by Cardinal Nichols, was held in the school’s sports hall, and Planet eStream was used to stream the service to all classrooms- ensuring that all staff and students were involved and could witness the unique occasion.
‘It was great to have the ability to engage everyone in the school with the service- all the classrooms showed the service simultaneously and no-one missed out. In a big school this is such a great way of making sure we can reach all our staff and students!’ - Sarah Treanor, ICT Consultant
