Felix started working at the school as a bus driver in 2005, and is now the visitor coordinator. The children were all mesmerized by the stories that Felix shared with us. He talked to the children about his family life, his Maasai tribe, about his life growing up in Tanzania and about the poverty that faces the people of Tanzania.
Our students heard about the School of St Jude and how only 150 children are selected to attend each year. In order to be selected children must be academic and from a poor family, with only one child from any family being able to attend. It reminds us how lucky we are in Australia to receive such a wonderful education.
At the end of his talk, Felix presented our school with The School of St Jude DVD, ‘My first day at the school of St Jude’ written by the students of the School of St Jude, and ‘St Jude’s’ a book written by Gemma Sisia.
