The children and teachers at Hale School were the very first people to hear a speech about Multicultural Me. At that time it wasn’t even a real book yet, and I told them how I was crowdfunding to finish the book.
Mrs Heldt, Head of Hale Junior Primary and Miss Benbow had also organised for a class to read the poem out during this school assembly. It was incredible watching the boys step up to the microphone and read the verses I had written.
I just cried with happiness.
Months later once Multicultural Me was published, I was able to gift a copy to Hale School.
I thought that was it.
Then the class sent me a whole BOOK of thank you letters like this one:
I cried some more!
When I started the Multi-Me Radio podcast I just knew I had to introduce those wonderful boys, Mrs Heldt and Miss Benbow to the world. (Listen to the interview here)
Thank you Hale Junior School for your friendship.
