Sixth Form students attend London International Model United Nations

Four Sixth Form students attended London International Model United Nations this weekend, representing United States of America, New Zealand, Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia.

To launch the two-day conference, students were inspired by speakers during the Opening Ceremony, focused on the ’16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign’.

Debating topics ranging from ‘the effectiveness of sustainable development goals on poverty eradication’ to ‘state capacity in response to natural disasters and crises’, the four students were faced with representing the interests of their country in (often heated) debates. Having reached a consensus by the end of Saturday’s discussions, students then thrashed out resolutions on Sunday. Keen to ensure the agreements did not misrepresent their country.

All students performed their delegation roles admirably, with Conrad earning a ‘Distinguished Delegate Award’. The next Model United Nations event takes place in March.
