Latest Testimonials

Chris' speech was up there with the best I've ever heard. A remarkable man who has led an extraordinary life.

As for our KS4 students, they responded to Chris like a hero who had come home! They completely related to his story with a sense of awe and wonder (as well as a few tears) as he continued to reel off his account of South Africa during the Apartheid years.

Through Chris' potted and personal history of how South Africa rose to become the Rainbow Nation, his message shone through and our students learned that after all the determination and the courage of standing up for what you believe in, real heroes have to abandon vengeance and embrace forgiveness.

A powerful and emotional experience meeting you Mr Lubbe. Thank you so much and please come again each and every year!
