On the 26th September, whilst pupils and staff were busy with Open Morning, eight pupils went to Reigate Grammar to take part in the first MUN conference of the season. Experienced MUNers Rita and Khadijah were invited to chair committees and they carried this off with great success, showing not only detailed understanding of procedure but also encouraging less experienced delegates to participate. Our two delegations (North Korea and Rwanda) got stuck into lobbying and fully immersed themselves in their roles- perhaps a little too much in the case of DPRK! Our two new delegates Scott and Valerie didn’t know what to expect at the start of the day but by Closing Ceremonies they had been won over. A special mention must go to Pippa who was only one of a handful of pupils to win the Highly Commendable Delegate award and also had her resolution debated in GA. A brilliant day ahead of RRMUN which is only three weeks away.
