Shrewsbury Model United Nations teams in action in Manchester

Thursday 6 February 2020

Twenty-three talented pupils spent last weekend debating key global issues with fellow delegates from across the UK at the Manchester High School for Girls MUN Conference.

“Representing Russia, Ireland and the Central African Republic, Shrewsbury MUN-ers were, of course, in the thick of the debates, and all developed massively as debaters in the course of the weekend because the level was so high,” said Teacher in Charge of MUN, Huw Peach, who accompanied the group to Manchester with Bordeaux Fellow Jeanne Fournis.

In each committee of between 20 and 30 delegates, there was one Outstanding Delegate, one Highly Commended Delegate, one Commended Delegate and three or four Honourable Mentions:

Highly Commended: James Leaver
