City of London School MUN Conference March 2012
Saturday 10 March saw two delegations of students from Royal Russell attend the City of London School MUN conference. Located next to St Paul’s Cathedral on the banks of the Thames, this is a fantastic venue, and the quality of the conference and debate was equal to it.
Topics for debate included use of IMF funds for an EU bailout, finding a balance between appeasement and intervention in North Korea, and the conflict in Syria.
With two different conferences scheduled for this weekend, we decided to take the younger, less experienced students, to CLS meaning that we did not come away with the raft of prizes and awards that the more experienced Royal Russell students at the Haberdasher’s conference won, but it was an extremely beneficial learning experience, and one that was greatly enjoyed by all the participants.
