Human Rights Foundation
On Thursday 12th March 2020, Fitzalan High School gladly welcomed Dennis Marcus from the Robert Kennedy Human Rights UK foundation along with members of the Welsh Government education team.
It was a meeting of mutual inspiration and admiration as members of our amazing pupil voice groups demonstrated their kindness, commitment and resilience in promoting human rights throughout the Fitzalan community.
Key members of staff who support this daily understanding of rights, with our pupils, joined a discussion of how we continue to promote this at Fitzalan.
We were all then amazed to hear how Dennis had been influenced by his life experiences to promote the cause of human rights across the globe - you could her a pin drop in the room as he told us how Nelson Mandela had attended his grandfather's birthday party and inspired his future. We were able to gift Dennis, a Fitzalan bag which we hope he will use to tweet us from another inspirational time and place.
