Jubilee Primary School’s Roots & Shoots group was invited to attend the annual award ceremony at the Royal National Theatre in September. We were the only group from London that was attending.
Four members of the group were lucky enough to travel up to town: Harvey Schneider, Amy-Ella Faria, Riccon Narine-Turnbull and Grace Bazunu.
When we got there we put up a display of the work we have done with our group – and we had drinks and biscuits! We also rehearsed what we were going to say in our presentation.
Jane Goodall came to the stand and met us. She told us a bit about her life and we told her what we had done in Roots & Shoots.
Then she spoke to all the schools there and the four of us got on stage and told the audience what we had been doing.
The best bit about the event was when Jane Goodall told us what she had done when she travelled the world. I found her really inspiring. We took lots of good ideas and enthusiasm back to our Roots & Shoots group.
