Our 15 students attending the 51st annual Hague Model United Nations conference have made a great start. Lucas and Ella have done really well as chairs. Lucas acting as President of the Environment commissions has been particularly busy. Ana-Maria as a judge on the model ICJ has been working hard and has already almost finished her first case. Stevie, as our ambassador, carried the Israeli flag during the opening ceremonies and went on to make a great opening speech in her committee. Tess and Robbie were also selected to make opening speeches and both did well. Everyone got involved in lobbying with Stevie looking to be main speaker on her resolution and a number of others hoping to be 1st or 2nd yield. By Wednesday everyone had spoken and were busy getting to make friends in their committees. On Wednesday afternoon 9 of the students visited both the ICC and ICJ courts based in the Hague.
