Dot Dot Fire Celebrates Black History Month at St. Antony’s Catholic Primary School

This October, Dot Dot Fire's Hilary spoke to students at St. Antony's Catholic Primary School as part of their 'Young, Gifted, and Great' Unit.


October marks an important month in the UK calendar, where students recognise the leadership, talent and impact of black heritage and culture. This year, our Co-Founder Hilary Lok had the pleasure of speaking to the children at St Antony’s Catholic Primary School about her life and work at Dot Dot Fire, participating in their Celebration Assembly for Black History Month.

Hilary shares her roots in Hong Kong with Pupils at St. Antony's Catholic Primary School.


The children at St. Antony's are studying present-day icons in their 'Young, Gifted, and Great' unit this term. These icons include F1 Champion Lewis Hamilton, Olympian Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Nobel Prize candidate Greta Thunberg, and our very own co-founder, Hilary! 


Dot Dot Fire understands the significance that good leadership and empowerment can have on the next generation. For this reason, we will always take the time to explore our roots, dreams, and perseverance with the young people we serve. From a start-up company in Hong Kong with big dreams of changing young people's education for the better, through to bringing Dot Dot Fire to the UK to expand financial literacy and wellbeing, ours is a story of adaptability and resilience that we were delighted to share with pupils at St. Antony's.


St Antony’s Catholic Primary school holds a very special place in our hearts, being the first school to launch the Money Wise Lessons and bringing Dot Dot Fire’s vision to life. Two years later, it was brilliant to continue inspiring the next generation with our words and wisdom.
