Royal Russell school students attended two different conferences this weekend helping their students to prepare for our annual conference. Four students attended the third Christ’s Hospital Security Council two day conference. This very intensive two day rolling news conference proved a real challenge to all the students who took part and it was very pleasing that Sam and Georgia won Highly Commended awards and Bart won the Outstanding delegate at the conference. Meanwhile twenty pupils attended the MUN conference at Reigate Grammar School. With our more experienced pupils attending a conference at Christ’s Hospital School, this was an opportunity for the newer delegates, many of them attending their first MUN conference, to experience the cut and thrust of debate with some 250 pupils from schools across the south east. All thoroughly enjoyed the experience and did excellently well in the debates. Particular mention goes to Badshah who won the outstanding delegate award in the Security Council, Georgia who as well as getting her resolution passed in the General Assembly won an outstanding delegate award and Callum who won a highly commended award for his work in committee.
Very well done to all our delegates.
The Year 6, 7 & 8 students who have been attending MiniMUN this term had the first chance to debate in the Great Hall set up as the General Assembly for our annual MUN conference.
This year students have debated subjects such as Endangered Species, Independence, Girls Sport and, on Wednesday, whether countries should support America in their war on Islamic State..
We are pleased to announce the huge success of the first model ICJ at our conference last year. Robert S Stern very kindly agreed to run this for us and footage of him announcing the case heard at this conference can be found in MUN TV. Robert S Stern recently retired from teaching at TASIS – The American School in England – and has been running a very successful model ICJ at THIMUN for a number of years. Details of the model ICJ can be found under ‘General Information’ and an application form will be included with the invitations for RRS IMUN 2015 to be sent out in March.
This year’s successful applicants can be found under ‘2014 Conference’ above.
