Fairfield Students present Assembly at Lockleaze Primary School

Fairfield peer educators visited Lockleaze Primary School on Wednesday May 19th to present an Assembly to over 80 children aged 7-11 yrs. After some nerves in the morning and a few technical difficulties, the Assembly got under way. The peer educators did extemely well, overcoming their nerves to present the Why I Respect project in an engaging and enthusiastic way. They had great interaction from the audience and answered questions really well. There was a focus on diversity and the leap from Primary to Secondary School. The Why I Respect film was shown and then the children asked questions about the project and the school.

Fairfield Student:
'I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I don't normally like public speaking.'
'It went really quickly and it was not as scary as I thought it would be.'

Alison Hendy, Deputy Headteacher Lockleaze Primary School: 'The Assembly fits in well with our work on tackling racism and discrimination, "Say No to Racism"/"Give Racism the Red Card"'.

Charlie Mee: 'The students will get extra merit points for their achievements today and representing Fairfield so well to younger children, who might well want to attend our School in the future.'
