12 Royal Russell students attended the 2nd Manchester Grammar School MUN conference on June 15th and 16th. This was an excellent one and a half day conference with many of the top schools from around Manchester sending delegates and a few schools like us from further afield. Our two Year 12 delegations both featured a great blend of experienced and less experienced MUNers and it was great to see Nicole get her resolution lobbied, debated and passed at her first conference. All our students did well making points and taking the floor and five students won awards with the Morocco delegation being awarded one of the commended delegation awards.
Outstanding delegate: David
Highly Commended: Sultan
Commended: Lucy, Josh & Kyle

We are pleased to announce that we will be running a model ICJ at our conference this year. Robert S Stern has very kindly agreed to run this for us and he will now be advising the successful applicants for positions as Judges and Advocates. Robert S Stern who presently teaches at TASIS – The American School in England – 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 was included with the invitations sent out in March.
