26 Royal Russell students attended the one day Benenden MUN conference, 15 as delegates and 11 as part of the RRS Media team. As always this was a very well run conference which provided a high standard of debate. With conferences at Croydon High and Athens coming up soon we took a relatively inexperienced delegate team to the conference and they did amazingly well. All the students made policy statements and spoke at least one other time in their committee. Scott, Rolanda, Josh and Stevie all had amendments debated and Megan spoke in GA. With the Royal Russell placards and flags being used in the General Assembly and the RRS MUN Media team filming the conference all our delegates felt at home and made the most of a great day of debating.
Meanwhile the MUN TV team were commissioned by Benenden to make a number of short films of the conference. They spent the day filming the conference, organising interviews with the key players and producing a number of short films. The fact that they had three films up and running on the internet just one hour after the end of the conference was an amazing achievement.
Copies of the films made by the RRS Media team are available here.
