MUN goes to The Hague
Three gifted debaters recently travelled to The Hague to take part in an MUN Away Season Conference where they represented Trinidad and Tobago.
Lower Sixth students Jamie, Charlie and Fatima, along with students from The Grange School in Northwich, formed the North West consortium team.
In addition to the invaluable experience the students gained by taking part in The Hague MUN conference, they also attended a presentation at the Shell headquarters, on energy needs and future scenarios , and saw a part of the trial of the former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic.
It is not only The Hague conference that the MUN team have been involved in. A big team also took part in the Stockport Grammar MUN conference and represented four countries: China, Syria, South Africa and Greece; while Year 12 student Jasmin was a guest chair in the Disarmament Committee.
An amazing number CHS delegates received a range of awards with the Chinese delegation, who were the overall winners, receiving the Outstanding Delegation award. Chemistry Teacher, Mr Stuart Taylor said: “All students were a credit to the school and enjoyed their experience immensely and the awards are an excellent reward for their hard work in research and fantastic debating skills in committees.”
