On Friday 18 March 2022, a group of 40 boys’ years 9 -11 took part in a Model United Nations (MUN) workshop. MUN is an interactive forum where pairs of students take on the persona, beliefs and values of specific countries that are either presently or have been part of the UN security council. In the current climate this is even more challenging than it has been in the past!

The students took part in debating and voting on two resolutions relating to: the questions of lethal autonomous weapon and the question of child labour.

The spirit of debate was high and some of the suggestions were very creative and at times a little unconventional. All the boys involved learnt a lot and a great deal of thanks is given to the members of UN Youth who came in and conducted the workshop and dealt with all the restrictions COVID through at them.
