Sir Ian McKellen Visits Morpeth School

Yesterday Morpeth school received a very special visit from Sir Ian McKellen the fine actor probably most well known for his role as Gandalf in Lord of the Rings. His visit coincides with a campaign for anti-homophobia in schools and he spent the afternoon talking with students about prejudice, bullying, homophobia and the things we need in place to tackle such issues.

Sir Ian was greeted by the schools percussion group ‘Pulse’ and I’ve attached a video of their performance below. This day was a real treat the kids who even managed to get a few photos with the great man himself. It was a really positive experience and one that is sure to make progress for this anti-homophobia campaign.
