Thank You Benedict!
It was a great day for the pupils of Kymbrook Lower
School on 26th March, when Benedict
Allen, author, explorer, TV filmmaker-presenter and
international motivational speaker, took a day out of his busy
schedule to talk to the children about his many expeditions.
The topic ‘Mountains High and Oceans Deep’,
meant children listened to stories of bravery and daring jungle,
desert, and polar region antics, all told with an impressive photo
display. To help bring his speech alive, Benedict brought along a
set of artefacts, including his survival kit.
Benedict also described, in detail, his
relationships with his camels and his dog team which was a
particular hit with the children.
Cllr David Sawyer, Portfolio Holder for
Education at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Guest speakers such as
Benedict are great at injecting enthusiasm into a school.
Motivational speakers provide benefit to many as their experience
and wisdom is shared, and can leave children with a hunger for
It was an inspirational experience that the
children may never forget.
Thank you Benedict!
