“He spoke to both year groups for over an hour and a half each.


“There was no fidgeting or looking at watches. He kept all the students spellboound and engaged for the whole workshop. He spoke about growing up in South Africa and the experience and difficulties he faced in relation to everyone being equal.


“He worked as Nelson Mandela’s bodyguard and shared stories, highlighting his philosophy for forgiving those who have done you wrong or gone against what you believe.


“All the students really enjoyed the workshop and wanted their photo taken with Chris after.”
