US Ambassador Visit

The US ambassador to the UK came to Mulberry School on the 5th March to speak with students on US foreign policy and education. The students took part in an interactive presentation, which consisted of polls on key and controversial US policies over the past ten years. They were asked for their opinion on matters such as the Iraq War, the War on Terror, the use of drones, and the current international conflict with Russia over Crimea. It was an insightful and engaging presentation, which generated an open discussion on the UK-US friendship. The ambassador was very interested in the students’ concerns and worries over US intervention and foreign policy, and in a warm manner the ambassador answered their questions and addressed their concerns. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to engage in a discussion with a senior diplomat and present their thoughts. As a follow up of this event, some students have been selected to visit the US embassy on Monday 17th March.
