So pleased the US Ambassador accepted my invitation to MK. Greeted by Headteacher, Sue Carbert, Ambassador Matthew Barzun spoke to 100 students from Ousedale School. An engaging hour of discussions about US and UK world affairs ensued.
The visit is particularly poignant as two students have already chosen to further their studies in America, with a further six currently going through the application process.
After the visit, Sue Carbert said "I was delighted to have the opportunity to host Ambassador Barzun at Ousedale, the student's interest in world affairs has grown dramatically over the past few years and they really appreciated the opportunity to put questions to the ambassador and hear more about the United States. I am sure the experience will be one that stays with them for a long time."
