Graduation success!

Clares CatChristine Barnell has become the first student to graduate from the Birmingham School of Bell Ringing.

Before joining the School Christine had already had one go at learning to ring, but had given up, not feeling she had ever gained enough confidence with bell control. A friend persuaded her to try again and pointed her in the direction of the School. We went back to first principles and retaught her, taking things at her pace and slowly building her confidence. Once through those early stages things really took off and her progress was rapid. She graduates having rung 6 quarter peals and is a credit to the School.

We won’t be saying goodbye though – she’s signed up to come back as a helper.

Congratulations Christine and very well done!

One thought on “Graduation success!

  1. Many thanks to all the tutors and helpers who have taught, encouraged, cajoled and persuaded me to ring. I’m really enjoying it now(even if it doesn’t always look like it). Best of all, there is always more to learn.
