Model United Nations: Delegate Awards

MUN online conference featuring S2 pupils
  • Senior School

Our Model United Nations Club recently attended two conferences with great success. 

On Saturday 25 February, David (S5), Ibrahim (S6), Charlotte (S5), Aaron (S5), Finlay (S6), Ciar (S6), Kaz (S6) and James (S2) represented George Watson's College at the Hutcheson's Grammar Conference. Across three committees our pupils debated the issues of Child Marriage, the Rise in Political Extremism and the Militarisation of International Relations. Watson's pupils then debated in a General Assembly motion, after which Finlay's excellent performance was recognised by the award of Commended Delegate:

“I was delighted to be awarded 'Commended Delegate' at the Hutcheson's MUN Conference. It was a brilliant conference with many fascinating discussions, and I am very grateful to have been a part of it. Myself and the team would like to thank Ms Walker and Miss McNaught for accompanying us to the event.”

Achievements continued into Monday (27 February) when six S2 pupils represented George Watson's College at the Loretto School MUN Conference. Ben (China), Jamie (Russian Federation), George (The United States Of America), Sofya (Bangladesh), Eva (India) and James (Indonesia) fiercely debated the topics of Homelessness and Corporate Responsibility. The pupils performed incredibly well, engaging in a balanced and strong discussion with Jamie excelling to win Best New Delegate:

“It was an honour to receive this award for the online conference against Lorreto. It was a great convention and was really fun for me and my friends. It helped all of us become better at debating and developing our MUN skills. We would like to thank Mr. Walls, Ms. McNaught, Charlotte (S5), and Ciar (S6) for supporting and encouraging us throughout the conference.” 

Congratulations to all our pupils who attended the conferences - superb work across the board!
