9th February 16
On Friday 5th February we were pleased to welcome Ms Mary Page to our school.
Ms Page has been living in Estepona since 2008 and has many years of political and trade union experience. She fought parliamentary and European elections, and served as a town mayor, councillor, and group leader of an East Anglia district council in the UK.
Ms Page participated in a Question and Answer session with our year 12 and 13 history students who asked her about several issues regarding the topics they are currently studying – Britain 1964-1990 and the Cold War in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Ms Page was a member of the Labour party until 1995 and visited the Soviet Union in 1986 and 1987. She shared her extensive first-hand knowledge about politics and the history of Britain and the USSR with our students who also questioned her about immigration laws, Margaret Thatcher and the state of the British economy in the 1960s and 1970s.
