On Saturday we welcomed 200 guests from eleven different schools to Godolphin and Latymer for the annual Model United Nations Conference.
This was the brainchild of Sophia, Ailbhe and Caroline in the Upper Sixth who worked to bring the conference together as part of their IB CAS project. We enjoyed a high standard of discussion throughout the day in committees on issues such as Child Marriage, Foreign Interventions in Civil War, Gun Control and the crisis in Yemen. One committee, DISEC 1983, mentally travelled back in time to 1983 to discuss nuclear disarmament which led to some very stimulating debate. Following three sessions in committees, the students came back together in the Bishop Centre for a General Assembly Crisis – discussing how their country proposed to resolve the (fictional) kidnapping of the Dalai Lama.
Well done to all the chairs and delegates from Godolphin and Latymer for all their hard work as well as to Sophia, Ailbhe and Caroline for the work behind the scenes organising it since February.
