American History and Politics Lectures
Two postgraduates from the University of Nottingham gave interesting lectures to Trinity pupils recently, one to Year 8 and one to the Sixth Form.
Both speakers enthused their audience with challenging and relevant discussions on as wide-ranging topics as the role of students in the civil rights movement, the role of emotional intelligence in making a good president and the art of communication.
The Year 8 pupils were thrilled by the opportunity to listen to Ms Potts superb and wide-ranging lecture on Martin Luther King, student protest and the civil rights movement.
Our Year 12 and 13 History and Politics pupils were treated to an informative and thought-provoking examination by Mr Gill on Presidential Power after the Second World War.
We are very grateful to the University of Nottingham's School of Cultures, Language and Area Studies for organising these events, and to both are speakers for giving up their time to speak with our pupils.
