Posted on 7th Oct 2021

Each day in October we will be finding out about Black History that is less well known.  Often Black History focusses on a few key individuals…we hope that this October everyone can learn something that they didn’t already know.

On Wednesday 29th September 2021 the Welsh Government unveiled the first ever statue of a Black woman in Wales.​​

Betty Campbell became the first Black head of a school in Wales, and turned Mount Stuart Primary School into an outstanding school that pioneered equality and inclusion.​​

When in secondary school, Betty was told that her ambition to become a school leader was too ambitious because of her ethnicity.  We’re all glad she proved her teachers wrong!​​
