Pupils from Stockport Grammar School were once again successful as they returned from their latest Model United Nations conference.
Held at Withington Girls’ School, 41 pupils from Stockport Grammar represented Zimbabwe, Germany, Russia, the UK and Iraq, with the delegation from Russia being commended for their performance.
And after seven pupils received commendations for their performances at October’s conference at Cheadle Hulme, this time 10 pupils were rewarded for their impressive range of independent research and speaking: Rachel Hulme, Alastair Watts, Catriona Leggart, Charlie Smith, Sam Arrowsmith and Will Stone received commendations, while Tom Fawcett, Joanna Boon, James Early and Zoe Harris were all highly commended.
An academic simulation of the United Nations, an MUN conference involves pupils researching a given nation before taking on roles as that country’s diplomats and debating and developing solutions to world problems. On this occasion, pupils debated issues ranging from forced sterilisation to alcohol consumption and Palestinian refugees.
Earlier this year, Stockport Grammar School played host to its own highly successful MUN conference.
