A wonderful occasion, the visit of the United States Ambassador Mr Matthew Barzun, to Saint John Bosco College. The Ambassador made a superb presentation to the Sixth Form students which involved him asking them many questions about their ideas and responses to U.S. culture and policy. The audience, which also included two representatives from our (U.S.) Partner Institution, Notre Dame University, were fully engaged and responded to Mr Barzun's openness. Receiving a special award for their outstanding contributions to the school are Darlene and Oliver.
The Ambassador helped the students identify the issues - foreign and domestic- which mattered to them and also challenged some of the myths or perceptions. We are extremely grateful to the Ambassador for visiting us and we look forward to being neighbours when we move to Battersea.
