On Friday lunchtime we set off for the annual Haileybury MUN conference, with sixteen pupils all ready to start debate and meet up with old friends. Thalia and Meera were invited to the conference as guest chairs and showed an impressive understanding of the debate procedure. Having prepared thoroughly beforehand Stevie, Josh, Pippa and Nikolai all had their resolutions debated in their committees, with Josh and Pippa making it into the General Assembly booklet – a great achievement. The standard this year was particularly high with lots of seasoned MUN schools in attendance but we came away with a collection of awards: Pippa winning Highly Commended Delegate and Josh, Alex L and Stevie all winning Distinguished Delegate Awards.
