Rev. Colin Chambers

On Monday 4th December we were delighted to host Rev Colin Chambers, the Chaplain to Robben Island when Nelson Mandela was there.

Colin spoke to year 8 and year 10 students about his experience on Robben Island and brought with him his Bible which is signed by the prisoners including Mandela.

Students listened to some fascinating stories which included how Colin first met Mandela and how he would sit with him in his cell and talk after services.

One of Mandela’s famous sayings was, ‘It always seems impossible until its done.’ Colin challenged the students to never give up and always persevere.
