5 Royal Russell students attended the 2014 St Andrews MUN conference in Dublin in April representing Russia and despite the small size of the delegation the students did brilliantly. Maria skillfully navigated her resolution on Ukraine through Security Council and David co-submitted a resolution through committee and into the General Assembly. At the closing ceremonies Tola, David and Tom all won Distinguished Delegate awards and the group won a prestigious Distinguished Delegation award.
MiniMUN has been successfully running every Wednesday night, the only weekly club with students from Years 6, 7 & 8. Students have been debating such issues as the age students should be allowed to leave school and a settlement for the Israel Palestine dispute. Each student has chosen a country to represent and each week they try to put forward the views of their country’s government. During the week before half term the students had the opportunity to debate in the Great Hall with the room set up for the GA debates at the Senior School RRSiMUN conference. Using microphones and the proper placards they had great fun having a serious and impressive debate.
We are pleased to announce the huge success of the first model ICJ at our conference this 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 soon 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 2014 to be sent out in March.
This year’s successful applicants can be found under ’2013 Conference’ above.
