Talk at Bridge Farm Primary School

Bianca Ambrose-Oji (Wolfson, Forestry) addressed the Year 5 and Year 6 Assembly at Bridge Farm Primary School, Whitchurch, Bristol on 20 February, describing her career from her early days in Bristol into a career in forestry which takes her around the  world, and how her days in Oxford opened up a whole new world for her.

Matt Stannard, Deputy Headteacher, wrote: “... a well received motivational talk which raised aspirations and showed how university and further education is the key to success.  Dr Ambrose was thoroughly engaging and the pupils were very impressed.  I would recommend these talks without reservation and welcome any further opportunities from your members”.
