Citizenship

Rikki's School visit

MORE BELOW

 

Year 11 were privileged yesterday to have Rikki Beadle-Blair  MBE , British actor, director, screenwriter, playwright, singer, designer, choreographer, dancer and songwriter to come and speak to them about his work and experiences growing up as black,  gay  man in London . Many pupils  were mesmorised as he spoke so openly about his career and the personal challenges he has faced. The pupils asked a wide raging set of questions from ' How have you dealt with the hate crime directed towards you in your life ?' to 'What is your biggest achievement ?' His parting words to the students were that he wanted to leave the world a better place and he hoped that as the next generation they would also strive to do that .

Rikki was invited into school after the pupils did some work on Diversity in PSHCE and watched  a film he directed and stared in called 'FIT' .The film tackles the issues of homophobic bullying and was well received by the pupils.
