A Clevedon author has been inspiring school pupils in Portishead.
Gordano School welcomed St John Greene, better known as Singe, to talk to sixth form students.
Singe wrote Mum’s List which was turned into a film starring Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox last year.
Mum’s List tells the true story about Singe’s wife Kate who was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer and before she died left him a list of activities to enjoy with their children.
Singe spoke to students about the importance of making the most of every opportunity.
Jeanne Fairs, the school’s head of sixth form, said: “‘Singe is very much a local leader; he lives in Clevedon, his wife was a student at Gordano School and he once worked as a lifeguard at Churchill School sports centre.
“The students were very engaged with his advice and he provided a springboard for a very productive afternoon of collaboration.”
