Tottenham University Launch with Dapo

On Wednesday the 20th October 2021 the amazing British/Nigerian author and Illustrator Dapo was the special guest for the opening of Tottenham University at Haringey 6th Form College.

We are extremely grateful for the enormous generosity of Haringey 6th Form College and the Principal Mr Russ Lawrence in donating journals and hosting the launch of the Tottenham University . Dapo was brilliant in his engagement of our young people and responded to their prepared questions.

Dapo explained that race and equality was very important in his work and that his stories and books were designed to focus on positive role models . The children asked questions about his books " Look up" and " Hey You" . 

Dapo's key message was never give up and keep trying ! 

Dr Lane said " This is amazing to see Tottenham University events in person and we hope the 150 children from local primary schools have an amazing experience with the speakers and visit to Oxford University " 

Dapo emphasised the importance of hard work in school and then posed for photographs and gave signed copies of his books to children who had asked questions .
