An inspiring start to the week with Alex Lewis

The day is now drawing to an end and I feel emotional, realising what a profound experience it has been to meet Alex Lewis.

His visit to the Cathedral School has truly been a gift and one which those of us who were fortunate enough to be present to witness his journey, will remember for the rest of our lives. His example, told through a gripping narrative, for both old and young, struck chords and found a deep resonance with every soul in the Big School Room. Personally, I was struck by Alex’s independent, charismatic spirit and his indomitable willingness to face another day. Adversity was not a word in his vocabulary.

My biggest joy was to feel the warmth of his handshake and to see the sparkle in his eye.

The pupils enthralled me with their blunt, honest and searching questioning, which ranged from the practicalities of stemming blood flow, with limbs amputated, to the more ethereal probing of how the experience had affected Alex’s faith.

Alex’s answers were thorough and from the heart.

Alex is a truly remarkable man and one whose charitable endeavours the Cathedral School will aim to support in the years ahead.

Thank you, Alex for touching our lives today.

May you continue to inspire and transform the paths of many people, both young and old.

Clive Marriott, Headmaster
