Fifths ‘America’ Conference at Downe House:
On Wednesday, 30th September, Downe House hosted 'America Day' for the entire
Fifth Form of Radley College.
The day consisted of three main lectures. The first was informative on America
and its society as a whole. The second was on Walt Disney and his influence. The
third and final talk was given by the United States Ambassador to the United
Kingdom, His Excellency Matthew Barzun, pictured below, who had earlier that same day visited
In between these three lectures, there were a large series of workshops and
American-themed activities: ranging from a traditional milkshake bar, to a
detailed talk about gun policies. We all enjoyed a traditional American lunch
as well, including the famous 'Mac and Cheese', together with ‘pulled pork’
Everyone had a great time, listening to outside speakers, as well as
catching up with friends from Downe House.
