Our Model United Nations delegates enjoyed another successful conference last weekend as they returned from Dublin having picked up some top awards.
At an MUN conference, delegates research a nation and take on roles as that country’s diplomats as they attempt to develop solutions to world problems. At this particular conference at Dublin’s Wesley College our pupils were challenged to discuss a variety of different topics in the security council, historical, environmental, political and health committees.
Stockport Grammar received plenty of recognition for our pupils’ outstanding performances. Sam Allport and Zoe Harris were commended and Ali Watts and Jo Boon were highly commended, while Tom Fawcett won the prize for the best delegate in the security council, which has the highest level of debaters.
Most impressive, though, was the team’s award for best delegation in general assembly – the equivalent of finishing second in the competition. All of the pupils involved can be very proud of their achievements.
Everybody at the school is also looking forward to our own MUN conference, scheduled to take place later this month. More information is available on our dedicated Model United Nations at Stockport Grammar School website.
It will be the first MUN conference to be held at the school since a highly successful event in 2010, which attracted young people from as far away as Cyprus and guest speakers such as Labour MP Tony Lloyd.
