Sixth Form Students Participate In International Oxford MUN Conference
Last Friday, 10 Sixth Form students departed for the historic city of Oxford, for the annual three day international Oxford MUN conference.
This conference was run entirely within iconic centres of learning such as the Examination Schools, Oxford Union and the Sheldonian Theatre.
This gave our students a wonderful insight into the student life at this prestigious university and permitted them to engage with other students from across the world.
Delegates participated over three days in a variety of committees, discussing international issues such as the illegal small arms trade, Antarctic resource exploitation, space exploration and the #metoo movement.
Students debated these issues and proposed solutions, employing impressive diplomacy and co-operation.
All of our delegates should be commended for their good company, enthusiasm and willingness to take part, addressing audiences of over one hundred fellow delegates and taking an active lead in debate.
Particular congratulations should be given to Marianna who was awarded ‘best delegate’ in the Science and Technology committee – an outstanding achievement during her very first MUN conference.Published: November 19 2019
