Chris Lubbe visits CNCS
On Friday 13 January, we were delighted to welcome Chris Lubbe to speak to our Year 9 students, House Captains and Anti-racism Ambassadors. Chris grew up in South Africa and he shared his story of South Africa’s’ transition from ‘apartheid’ to a democracy. Chris has worked with some of the greatest world leaders including Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, FW De Klerk and Colin La Foy.
During the talk students were inspired to believe that successful achievement is possible regardless of race, gender or disability. Students were also challenged to become proactive global citizens who challenge discriminatory behaviour. The key themes from his talk were determination, courage, perseverance, persistence and the power of forgiveness. We hope Chris will return to Cardinal Newman again in the future.
