Salopians compete in first ever Moreton Hall Mini-MUN

Friday 25 June 2021

A group of 18 Salopians took part in the first-ever Moreton Hall Mini-MUN, which was brilliantly organised and chaired by staff and girls from Moreton.

There were two debates in each committee during the morning, and then in the afternoon there was a crisis debate, bringing all the delegates together. Delegates had to think on their feet to respond to a fictional event.

Head of MUN, Huw Peach, said: “Our team were relatively experienced, but it was good to see so many of our Third Form who were up for the challenge. 

“A number of them, who really made their mark, also picked up awards, and I was delighted to see the spirit with which they engaged and debated.

In each committee of 25 delegates there were 2-3 Commended, 1 or 2 Highly Commended and one Outstanding Delegate.

The following won awards:

 Outstanding: Liam G (Rt, IV - USA) and Henry W (Ch, III - Zimbabwe)

 Highly Commended: Issy P (MSH, III - USA) and Cam G (O, III - Mali) 

 Commended: Maggie C (M, III - Mali) and Miranda R (EDH, III - Mali)

Mr Peach added: “It's good to see new talent coming through. One more MUN to go on Sunday 27th June, hosted (online again) by Withington School, involving older pupils.”
