Bringing an expert (Chris Lubbe) into the classroom via VC made learning about racism and apartheid real, very moving, heart felt and inspirational.
Redbridge Primary School quote : We feel privileged to have had the opportunity to have an insight into Chris Lubbe`s personal experiences during apartheid and Nelson Mandela`s term in presidency in South Africa. His talk on such a sensitive subject as racism was informative and full of personal anecdotes. The children were able to relate to the power of personal experiences. The pictures helped the children to fully appreciate his situation and the suffering caused by racism.Chris left a huge positive impression on the children when he talked about forgiving people who had mistreated him and his culture. Children thought that it was amazing that he could overcome extreme racism and move on to become successful in his life.
