Over the lockdown all MUN delegates have had the opportunity to experience MUN online. This has presented challenges as well as opportunities and we are pleased that AbingMUN has been able to continue to meet and debate throughout this period.

Thomas Long (L6th) and third year students Hamish Bloom, Louis Bhatia and Robert Sagar all took part in an online Model Arctic Council training event during the November lockdown with Robert and Louis taking part in the conference at the beginning of March. This was a superb effort as they were both new to the activity this academic year.

At the end of February, ten students participated in the annual Magdalen College School MUN conference held this year online. As always the standard of debate was high with the students adapting to the new procedures for this virtual event. We were thrilled when Abingdon was awarded the Best Delegation Award, for the fourth year in a row, this time representing Japan. Our thanks go to all at MCS for an excellent event.
