The Latest Round Square Talk and History Conference

We were delighted to welcome Dr Oyawale from the University of Warwick to Kingsley this week. He delivered a fascinating talk to Senior School students on ‘The New Africa’, which was also the focus of the recent Round Square conference in Kenya.

Dr Oyawale is an Assistant Professor in International Security and course director for Warwick’s MA in International Relations. He holds a Bachelors in Politics and Psychology from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria, a Masters in International Security, and a PhD in Politics.

The talk was delivered as part of our recently launched Round Square Talks programme. We’re looking forward to welcoming Mr T Cox, Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, on 21st November.

On Thursday, some of our Year 10 students also took part in a Round Square history conference online. They explored the impacts of The Second World War from a varied range of global perspectives. The students had to present on how World War II is presented in England and how it impacted the UK directly.

Students also heard similar presentations from others around the world, including schools in India, Australia, Ecuador, Italy, Hong Kong and Pakistan. The students gained a deeper understanding of the global nature of World War Two and how it affected each country differently.
