Hon Alexandra Shackleton Visit

Year 5 had a special visit this week, from the Hon Alexandra Shackleton - the only grand-daughter of the great Antarctic explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton. 

The children heard about Shakleton and his men and their extraordinary story of survival against the odds.

In particular, she focused on Shakelton's leadership qualities and retold the epic tale of how he led his men to safety.

Alexandra Shackleton has herself visited the Antarctic several times and has been a Patron of numerous Antarctic expeditions.
