More M.U.N. success at Queen's
For the second year running Queen's were awarded the prestigious Best Delegation award at the Kingswood Model United Nations Conference held over the weekend of 2-4 March 2012. We beat 149 delegations from 52 other schools.
Our first team, representing the USA, scored the biggest success with Henry Maxwell-Lyte in the Disarmament Committee, Marc Bartkowiak in the Economic Committee and Tom Howe in the Health Committee all achieving Highly Commended delegates. Whilst Ben Judge and Michael McLeod achieved the award of Best Delegates for their work and resolutions in the Middle East and Security Councils respectively. Along with the excellent work done by Jack Johnson and James Baker in the Human Rights committee, this was an outstanding team performance.
Queen's College was represented by a total of 21 enthusiastic students drawn from Years 10-13 and several received individual accolades, including James McLeod in the Political Committee who achieved a Commended Delegate award.
The Model United Nations initiative has flourished at Queen's under the enthusiastic leadership of Nick O'Donnell and ably assisted by Year 13 student Ben Judge. Queen's are organising an M.U.N. Conference involving many local schools on Saturday 17th March from 8.30am to 5pm.
