Model United Nations Debating Conference
A group of 14 students, from Third to Sixth Form, took part in a remote Model United Nations Conference which was attended by over 250 students from schools across the country.
Bloxham students represented Yemen and Oman in committees such as Human Rights, Economic and Social, and the Middle East, debating current global issues such as the Yemen crisis, freedom of speech and the Hong Kong Protests.
English Teacher, Clare Summers said "The Model United Nations Conferrence provides a great opportunity for students to develop skills such as networking and debating, as well as learning more about real world issues, and it is fantastic that we have been able to participate despite school closures."
The students enjoyed practising their debating skills and rose to the challenges presented by the remote format. Congratulations to Joseph B., who was Highly Commended for his contribution to the Environment and Health committee, representing Yemen.
