Nicholas McCarthy and BBC South East News
After searching for a piano piece on the internet Emily, in Year 6, came across Nicholas McCarthy. As an aspiring young musician, Emily knew it would be an inspiration for her and her friends to hear Nicholas' story.
"I recently sent an email to the famous one handed pianist Nicholas McCarthy. Nicholas was born with one hand and started to play the piano when he has 14. He’s now only in his 20’s and is a mesmerising concert pianist who agreed to come to Kent College today."
Reporter Charlie Rose, from BBC South East, spent time filming the event, which was featured on the news.
This event builds upon Kent College's growth mindset ethos and the concept of triumph over adversity.
