An inspiration to us all

We were very lucky to be visited by a local author called Marcelle Roujade yesterday. She wrote a book called ‘Black Boy Can’t Fly’. She explained to Year 6 about her life and how she moved from Guadeloupe to the UK to follow her dreams. Growing up, her son wanted to be a pilot, but was told by people around him that “Black boy can’t fly, he’d just crash the plane.”. However, Marcelle’s son was determined and resilient and is now working as a commercial airline pilot around the world. Year 6 then discussed their own dreams and aspirations, and how it would make them feel if they were to achieve it. Thanks to Marcelle for taking the time to come in- we really appreciate it.
