Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 05 February 2024: Last week, RGS Guildford Dubai had the honour of hosting Baroness Floella Benjamin OM DBE, the esteemed actress, presenter, author and children's advocate, as part of her participation in this year's Emirates Literature Festival.
 
During her time at RGS Guildford Dubai, took Baroness Benjamin embarked on a special tour of the campus, with a notable stop at the school's library. She captivated the pupils by providing a reading session with excerpts from her renowned books, Keep Smiling and Coming to England. Pupils from year groups 3 and 4 had the unique opportunity to interact directly with the Baroness, asking insightful questions and drawing inspiration from her remarkable career.
 
Budding young writer, Karim Ahmed Siddiqi, a Year 5 pupil presented his first published book to Baroness Benjamin. At the beginning of 2023 Karim started authoring a book called ‘Mystery of Mansions’ , a cozy mystery story set in 1930’s England, which was published earlier this month.

In 2020, she was awarded a Damehood for her charitable activities, chaired the Windrush Commemoration Committee, and was honoured by the late Queen Elizabeth II with the Order of Merit, as well as receiving a prestigious appointment at the Coronation of King Charles.
 
Clare Turnbull, Principal of The Royal Grammar School Guildford Dubai, shared her enthusiasm about the visit, stating: “Hosting Baroness Floella Benjamin was an extraordinary experience for not only the pupils but the whole RGSGD community.
