MUN conference commendations
On the 11th of October a delegation of 9 students from Years 10 to 13 went to King’s School Canterbury for a Model United Nations Conference.
Model United Nations is a debating forum based on current affairs and world issues. The Delegates faced a variety of different issues: the situation in Kurdistan, in the Security Council; the monopoly of big pharmaceutical companies, in the Economic and Social Council; the democratic rule of law in LEDCs, in the Legal Committee; and ageing populations in the Social and Humanitarian Committee. A huge variety of topics that our Delegates debated very effectively.
Model United Nations is a relatively new club here at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School and we were extremely proud to see some of our new delegates giving it a go, for the first time, at this conference. Split across a variety of countries our delegates represented Ireland, India, Sweden and Bolivia. With both Charles King-Tenison, as Sweden on the Security Council, and Oscar Franklin, as Ireland on the Legal Committee, receiving a special commendation on their Committees. Additionally the rest of the delegates represented their Nations superbly, often sparking controversial debate.
The school is looking to host a Conference later this academic year in March and with a delegation as strong as this it is sure to be a success.
