BARONESS FLOELLA BENJAMIN OBE GIVES INSPIRATIONAL SPEECH TO PUPILS


Pupils at Rendcomb College were visited by Playschool presenter and children’s rights campaigner Baroness Floella Benjamin OBE.


As part of the school’s Founder’s Day celebrations, Baroness Benjamin gave rousing speeches to the children, speaking about her childhood experience of coming to the UK aged 11 from Trinidad in the 1960s and encouraging them to go the extra mile, consider those less fortunate and face challenges head on.


The Baroness, who earlier in the week had won gold at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for her Windrush Foundation Garden, had some words of advice for the pupils in the form of the ‘three Cs.’ She said: “Be considerate and have empathy; be contented in your heart and don’t be jealous or envious; and have confidence, don’t ever be afraid of tomorrow or ashamed of what you did yesterday.” She also commented on Rendcomb College saying; “I can feel how much your teachers care about you. They walk the extra mile for all their pupils.”


It was an inspirational visit that was appreciated by both pupils and their families who gave Baroness Benjamin a rapturous applause. Following the speech she stayed at the school to spend time talking to the pupils one-to-one.

Founder’s Day is an event held to remember Rendcomb College’s founder, Frederick Noel Hamilton Wills, who opened the school in June 1920 for 12 boys from Gloucestershire. Almost 100 years on, the school now educates nearly 400 children from around the world. Rendcomb also works with the Royal National Children’s SpringBoard Foundation, the UK’s biggest boarding school bursary charity providing life-transforming opportunities for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
