Year 6 Chris Lubbe Video Conference
Year 6 had the most fantastic opportunity of taking part in a video conference with Chris Lubbe; a motivational speaker who worked very closely with Nelson Mandela in South Africa.
Hearing him talk about his life growing up in apartheid South Africa and how he overcame daily challenges against racism and hate had a profound effect on the pupils. His message of peace and forgiveness in the face of senseless anger taught the children the right way of dealing with a problem – and the long term benefit of sticking up for what you believe in.
The children asked insightful questions and were able to apply Churchfields values such as resilience, appreciation and communication on a deeper level.
