Ten students from ACS Egham recently took part in the Model United Nations (MUN) conference at London School of Economics (LSE) between 31st January and 2nd February.

The MUN was established in 1961 by Paul Sands from The American School of The Hague, and seeks to engage students in collaborative discussion on some of the world's most important strategies aimed at improving the global community.

The students, from Grades 10, 11 and 12 took part in debates with over eighty students from high schools and sixth forms from across Greater London and Surrey, including Wellington College, Westminster Academy and The Latymer School.

The students entered a variety of specialised forums and debates, including Disarmament and International Security and Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Affairs. According to Christine Lund, the MUN trip leader, ACS Egham performed exceptionally well, with Nathan Hartman, Edward Blanchard, and Carter Brace being voted 'Best Delegates' in their respective forums.

Christine Lund, director of Model United Nations, commented:

'The trip to LSE for the MUN conference was a brilliant experience and inspired the pupils who are all now dedicated to joining MUN as they progress onto university. Everyone performed exceptionally well and conveyed their points, resulting in three ACS Egham students being voted best delegates. Considering the calibre of the other schools who were present, this is an amazing achievement and something we can all be proud of.'
