We heard last week that, Mick Mannion, a former teacher of Richard Challoner, passed away after a long battle with cancer. Mick taught Music at Challoner for thirty years and retired in 1996. We will post details of Mick’s funeral when they become known. Below is an extract from ‘Chalk & Talk’ following Mick’s retirement.
