Students from CAPA College perform a song from the musical


Students from CAPA College give a stunning musical performance of two songs from Godspell - “Day by Day” and “Bless the Lord” - to the members of the Rotary Club of Wakefield Chantry at one of their recent meetings. The performance was to celebrate the Chantry Rotary Scholarship provided to one student of the college, Joe Timpson, over the past 3 years . The scholarship has been a new innovation for the Rotary Club in collaboration with the College.

CAPA College is one of the North of England's leading post-16 Performing Arts colleges offering full time professional training and education in the Arts.  Alongside achieving outstanding examination results past CAPA College graduates have progressed to some of the country's leading Performing Arts conservatoires and universities and now are working successfully in the professional Performing Arts sector.

The inaugural scholarship was awarded to Joe as a prestigious acknowledgement of his commitment and achievement in the Arts.  The scholarship has helped support Joe in his training and development over the last three years enabling him to fulfil his potential and to turn his dreams of a successful career in the Arts into a reality.

Following the performance, Joe was presented with the last tranche of the Scholarship by Graham Wilson, a Past President of the Rotary Club of Wakefield Chantry who was instrumental in the setting up of this Scholarship.

Claire Nicholson, the Director of CAPA college said "CAPA College are delighted to be working in partnership with the Rotary Club of Wakefield Chantry and are so grateful for their generosity demonstrated in the Rotary Scholarship that was awarded to Joe Timpson who was then one of CAPA College's first year students.  This award hasl really supported Joe over the last three years of his training and has  helped him achieve his dream of pursuing a career in the Arts.  Joe is a dedicated, talented and hardworking student and such a positive role model for other young people and therefore a very worthy recipient of this prestigious honour from Wakefield Chantry.  CAPA and the Rotary Club share a common goal of wanting to help young people be able to fulfil their true potential and we look forward to continuing our working partnership together to achieve this."
