The Year 11 Model United Nations conference, a simulation of the real UN, was held on Friday 9th of March during periods 3 and 4. Delegates practised their diplomacy, cooperation, and debate skills, as they assumed the policies of their allocated nations, therefore promoting the ideals of political understanding.
During period 3, the delegates were split into their committees to debate important global issues before attending the General Assembly in the Bishop Centre. They all passionately responded to a surprise cyber-attack by international hacktivist group Anonymous that affected the oil industry and all the countries that heavily depend on oil.
The successful organisation of the conference and the exceptional standard of the debating was a result of excellent team work by our MUN captains, Ella von Baeyer, Sophia Dyvik-Henke, Serena Janssens, and Sophia Immordino, and our Lower Sixth MUN club members. The conference would not have been possible without them.
