Yesterday, Year 5 and 6 were fortunate to have some very special visitors. Mike K, Christine S and Professor Lynch visited to talk about their lives and achievements. They are part of an organisation called Global Outreach which is designed to show young people that anything is possible with enough hard work and determination. It aims to help integration across the community through a variety of outreach programs.
Professor Lynch, who used to be the Queen Mother's Gynecologist (and delivered the future King of England, Prince George) talked to the children about his humble upbringing and how his hard work and dedication had led him to become the leading authority in preventing hemorrhages during child birth.
The children finished the day feeling thoroughly inspired by the people they had met.
Henry, Year 6 said, 'I enjoyed learning about Professor Lynch's life and being able to meet people with a similar background to me who had gone on to be so successful.'
Liam, Year 6 said,'I loved seeing the artifacts from around the world and learning about how sculptures were often used instead of written words to express feelings. It was really interesting.'
