Year 11 pupil, Gaurika, was invited to meet the Prime Minister at an evening reception at 10 Downing Street on Thursday 15 November to celebrate Diwali.
Theresa May's husband, Philip, delivered a speech on behalf of the Prime Minister, who was in the midst of Brexit negotiations. Gaurika met many interesting people, including Gurkhas who personally served the Queen and with Prince Harry in Afghanistan. One of the highlights of the evening for Gaurika was the opportunity to view the Lorcano Room in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as she is passionate about History. In Gaurika's words, "All in all, the evening was very enjoyable and a night to remember!"
