Model United Nations
31 January 2019
Last weekend, boys from the Abingdon Model United Nations travelled to Manchester High School for Girls to take part in their annual two day MUNHIGH conference. The conference is one of the largest held in the north west with over 330 delegates from 28 schools taking part. Abingdon delegates represented Iran and Burkino Faso throughout the weekend.
The theme of the conference was 'Justice' and the boys debated a huge range of topics including, maintaining peace on the Korean peninsula and the issue of colonisation in space. The boys were delighted to come away with several awards including outstanding delegate awards for James Gibson and Lancelot Wilson. They also won the prestigious Outstanding Delegation award for representing Iran.
Overall, it was a fantastic event and our thanks go to the team at MUNHIGH for organising such a superb conference.
