On 23rd November, KEHS students attended a very successful Model United Nations conference at London Oratory School. The conference was opened by guest speaker Professor Francis Campbell, who has worked in a number of high profile roles at the UN, the EU and the UK foreign office. He is now Vice Chancellor of St Mary’s University and Professor of International Relations. During his speech, he emphasised the need for skilled diplomacy and the understanding of context in a world full of ill-informed judgements and the rapid spread of news. In a joint team with KES, we sent delegations representing Bolivia, Thailand and Libya. Various controversial issues were discussed, from the events occurring in Hong Kong to world over population. At the end of the conference the prize winners were announced and our Bolivia delegation, including Shivanii and Nikita, won the most prestigious award of “Best Delegation”. Individual congratulations go to Shivanii, who won best delegate on the Human Rights Committee, and Cathy who was commended for her role as a delegate. Well done to all the delegates. We are all looking forward to the next MUN conference at Shrewsbury School in March.
