Author Bali Rai Visits

Author Bali Rai Visits

Pupils had an opportunity to meet and speak to author Bali Rai when he visited school. He met members of the First Year Library Club and read their reviews of ‘Now or Never‘, a story set around the true experiences of an Indian solider in World War I. He had coffee with Sixth Form leaders of Voice4Change and their wide-ranging conversation ranged from equality, representation and diversity in books to society in general.  He then gave a talk to the Third Year on the subject of empathy which included his own personal reflections of growing up in a multi-cultural world, and links to historical figures in twentieth century UK.  His visit was thought provoking and inspiring and a fantastic way to launch Book Week.
