Former Lord Mayor Dan De'Ath visits children at Roath Park Primary completing the I AM Programme
In 2019 Dan De'Ath was inaugurated as mayor of Cardiff; the first black mayor Cardiff had seen. Dan De'Ath came to Roath Primary to speak to children participating in the I AM Programme about his experience as Mayor and how they can make a career for themselves in politics too.
The I AM Programme provides children and young people a space to explore identity, origin of race etc, covering themes such as history, representation, racism and discrimination, the Equality Act 2010, conflict management, mental health and well-being, genetics etc, assisting with their journey to self-actualisation
Children at Roath Primary enjoyed engaging with a range of interactive learning materials and getting involved in conversations surrounding similarities and diversity.
