Our students have now returned from a very successful trip to the 52nd annual Hague Model United Nations’ conference. Over 3,000 students from around the world had gathered in The Hague for the conference including just four schools from the UK. Our students, representing Georgia, all enjoyed the week and did really well. Everyone set themselves different targets at the beginning of the week and it was great to see them reach them. Some of our students, unused to speaking in public, did amazingly to stand up in committees of over 150 delegates to ask questions, make amendments and take the floor. Other more extrovert students like Betsy and Simon made real impacts in their committees with their amendments and other speeches. And perhaps the two most active delegates, Izzy and Sam, worked well collaboratively in their committees and took the floor many times during the week. Sam did brilliantly to main submit his resolution and to lead the debate in committee. Elsewhere at the conference we had three members of the press team with Ella writing a number of excellent articles, Zoya producing some excellent pictures and Sammie working on lay-out. Dionne was one of the best chairs at the conference and Aaron did a really good job in the ICJ. He was alone in his judgement on the first case but impressed everyone with the logic of his decision. Finally Ella Jones really did the school proud as one of the Deputy Sec Gens (who basically run the conference). She made an emotional but very good speech at the closing ceremonies in front of 2,000!
