Cynthia Rowe - Black History Month Assembly

As part of Black History Month, the children in KS2 were lucky enough to enjoy an assembly hosted by our amazing guest speaker Mrs Cynthia Rowe, the headteacher of a school in St Albans.  Mrs Rowe told the children about her family and her life growing-up, including the racism she encountered .  The focus of her assembly was about having a sense of belonging in the world, and in the words of Baroness Floella Benjamin "All children, everywhere in the world, need to know they belong."  After the assembly, the children in year six had the opportunity to ask Mrs Rowe questions about her life and her experiences - they were captivated and inspired by her exuberance for life, her courage to challenge bigotry and her capacity for forgiveness.  We very much look forward to Mrs Rowe's next visit, which will hopefully be in the very near future.
