Christ’s Hospital had a fantastic weekend at Haileybury School, the largest Model United Nations conference for senior schools in the country. CH had 31 delegates representing Oman, Portugal, Chad, Azerbaijan and Antigua and Barbuda.
Helena Walsh, the Secretary General, has done an excellent job this term in preparing the MUN team for this particular competition, and the hard work really paid off with prizes across the board. Thanks to outstanding research, confident and persuasive debating, and watertight resolutions, the CH team won two of the top prizes for distinguished and highly commended delegations as well as numerous individual prizes won by the following:
Distinguished delegate: Andrew, Helena, Andre, Rose, Lottie, Adeola.
Highly commended: Theo, Milo, Marvelous, Amber.
Over the course of the weekend, issues such as the conflicts in Yemen and Kashmir were discussed, as well as domestic violence against men and the conditions in prisons.
Congratulations to all MUN participants for a superb weekend.
