The latest installment of the Model United Nations (MUN) season unfolded at MUNHigh, hosted by Manchester School for Girls, showcasing the enthusiastic participation of our students. Team Queen's adeptly represented both Greece and Japan, featuring a mix of first-time delegates and seasoned MUN veterans. Notably, Year 12 student Maahi was accorded the honor of serving as a guest chair in the Disarmament Committee.
One of the distinctive features of MUNHigh is its inclusion of a Historical Council, challenging delegates to immerse themselves in pivotal moments of the past. This year's historical simulations delved into the complexities of the 1956 Suez Canal crisis, the era of apartheid in South Africa, and the tragic events surrounding the dropping of nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The intensive two-day conference demanded exceptional stamina and perseverance from delegates, while chairs worked tirelessly to maintain committee focus and foster positive diplomatic relations. A commendable effort was made by all who rose to the challenge. The culmination of the event took place on Sunday afternoon, as committees convened in the General Assembly to engage in a Crisis scenario, fostering collaborative discussions in larger groups, an experience thoroughly enjoyed by all participants.
Special mention to Simran in Year 11 who was awarded Best Young Delegate as Japan in the Disarmament Committee, and to Kitty in Year 11 who was Commended for representing Japan in the Political Committee. These accolades highlight the commendable efforts and achievements of our students on the MUN stage. Congratulations to all who contributed to the success of this enriching experience!
