I am chair of governors of New Brompton College which means I get a chance to interact with our excellent staff and very talented students.
Today was one of those days when I had the pleasure of going to the Brook Theatre in Chatham to watch their production of ‘Alice in Wonderland and Alice through the Looking Glass’ which was an excellent production.
I loved the dark side of the story which was acted to a fantastic standard. These students were fantastic and showed their gifts and talents brilliantly on the stage.
I left wishing people could see this side of young people’s attitude rather than the overwhelming negative stuff that appears in the national press. Today I saw examples of the behaviour of the majority of young people: talented, enthusiastic, keen, gifted and wanting to be creative and do things to the best of their ability.
Today the students were not just a fantastic credit to NBC, they were a fantastic credit to young people full stop!
