Four Halcyon Grade 11 students attended London International Model United Nations High School (LIMUN HS) Conference at King’s College. Their excellent preparation did not go unrecognised as Eric, Kieran, Nate and Nathan won ‘Best Delegation’ for their outstanding debating performances.
Eric and Nate received the ‘Outstanding Delegate’ award as UK in ECOSOC (Economic and Social Committee) and the USA in the Security Council respectively. Kieran and Nathan won the ‘Best Delegate’ award representing the UK in DISEC (Disarmament and International Security Council) and UNEP (UN Environmental Programme), earning them free places at LIMUN, the largest University level conference in the UK.
“Given a simple premise, in my case the role of multinational corporations in sustainable development, students successfully debated a number of relevant points. Additionally, seeing how people’s personal beliefs interplayed with how they imagined their nation would react to an issue was very enlightening.” – Nate, Grade 11, in ECOSOC as UK.
