Cilfrew Primary

Peter has met with local school children from Cilfrew Primary to discuss his own experiences of Apartheid rule in South Africa. The visit is the first of many taking place within the Neath area.

“It was really amazing to see children as young as six taking an interest in such an important topic and such a great man as Nelson Mandela.” Said Peter following the visit.

Peter spoke of his own experiences as a child growing up in Pretoria when he was only able to go to school with white children and take part in sports such as rugby, football and cricket with white children under Apartheid rule.

“It was a horrible way to live. I have been brought up to believe that everyone, no matter what colour their skin, is equal. Both my parents fought for equality and that is why I chose to fight against Apartheid.”

The pupils at Cilfrew Primary have been learning about “Authority and Leaders” and Nelson Mandela. Peter also talked about his experiences of Nelson Mandela.

“He is an amazing man who stood up for his beliefs and in doing so spent 23 years in a prison on Robben Island and a further 4 years in a Cape prison. It was great to see him released and then to become democratically elected as President by the people of South Africa in 1994.”
