St Paul's Way Trust student success at Model United Nations Conference

St Paul’s Way Trust School students from Year 10 and 12 took part in the Model United Nations (MUN) Conference at the International Maritime Organisation in December.

MUN is an opportunity for students to develop a deeper understanding of current world issues, diplomacy and international relations. It teaches key skills such as public speaking, debating and critical thinking.

The focus of the conference this year was Human Rights. Discussions centred around ways the international community could join forces to protect human rights and tackle discrimination. Delegates considered the potential of this combined effort to eliminate slavery and protect the rights of children, refugees, LGBT+ and indigenous peoples around the world. The Security Council and Crisis Committee delegates also addressed the rights of the Rohingya people.

Delegates from St Paul’s Way were outstanding, with students winning awards in every category and commendations on their leadership and public speaking skills. There was particular praise for Imad and Zahra who led the sessions as Honourable Chairs and were highly professional.
