S1 came to the LRC to investigate the life of Nelson Mandela. Mrs Letham showed the class his picture and told them three facts about him:

  • his name
  • he was in prison for 27 years
  • he was President of South Afric

The class were then asked to think of questions that they would like answered.

While discussing ideas with their groups, one pupil asked about a Scottish connection – so we showed them Nelson Mandela Place in Glasgow on Google Maps.

That street was specifically chosen to receive his name – wonder if you know why?
