'America' Conference

'America' Conference

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 Radley itself.

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’ from Louisiana.

Everyone had a great time, listening to outside speakers, as well as catching up with friends from Downe House.
