Special visit

Pictured above and below are pupils and author, actress and activist, Buhle Ngaba.

Author, actress and activist, Buhle Ngaba visited Seaview Primary School last month. Ms Ngaba read her story, The Girl Without a Sound, to the pupils at their school. The book aims to empower and inspire young girls – and girls of colour in particular – and remind them that their voices deserve to be heard. The Girl Without a Sound tells the story of young girl who struggles to find the power of her own voice. “It started off as me writing a story about how I felt voiceless as a little girl but, as I shared the story with others, I was overwhelmed by their support as they recognised the same feelings within themselves. I began to realise and see the need to make space for the voices of girls and women to be heard and I hope that more writers and creators will join me,” she said.
