The talk was followed by a question and answer session when students asked questions, such as, "Is it easy to be a politician?" and "Does Sweden plan to become involved in Afghanistan, and how?".
A few students also spoke directly to Ms Linde and Mr Österberg while they shared fika. The visit finished with the politicians having a tour of the school. Both politicians commented on our students' engagement and awareness of current social issues.
