Eltham College was extremely grateful to Tom Ilube CBE for speaking to both staff and pupils about his eclectic career and how he has benefitted from the resilience he developed by trying new things and failing fast.This Black History Month at Eltham College has been a re-focus on Black British History and Black British stories because Black British History is being made right now.Tom was able to remind us all how broad, varied and enjoyable life can be if we are persistent and seek out new opportunities. We look forward to welcoming Tom back in our future celebration and reflections.
