Westonbirt was lucky to have a lecture from Dr Husam S. Zumlot on Friday night. Dr Zumlot is the Head of the Palestine Mission to the UK and delivered a fascinating lecture on the issues faced by Palestine. He gave insights into his time as the Palestinian Ambassador to the United States and what the future relationship between the UK and Palestine might look like. A lively Q&A followed to cap off a brilliant lecture. It was great to hear our history A-level students interacting with excellent questions which continued into the lecture supper. Conversations are already in place regarding a school trip to Palestine & a further partnership, to enable extended understanding of this region.
Thank you to Dr Zumlot for coming to Westonbirt and to Mr Ahmed for organising this well-attended lecture.
