Judd's success at MUNGA
Congratulations to the 16 Year 12 students who participated in the 2019 Tunbridge Wells Model United Nations last week. Alongside delegations representing Bangladesh, Cuba and the United States, students were involved in the press and secretariat teams and also co-chaired the committee on International Conflict. The Model United Nations allows students from local schools to recreate the United Nations General Assembly, discussing critically important current issues such as famine, nuclear armaments and climate change from different national perspectives.
Judd students were phenomenally successful, receiving many well-deserved awards. Theo was named as best delegate in the International Conflict Committee, having skilfully argued the United States' case under sustained criticism from almost every other country! Eleanne won best delegate for her passionate portrayal of Bangladesh's struggles against climate change. Sophie was also jointly awarded best delegate, representing Cuba in the Land and Water Use Committee. For her valuable contribution to the smooth running of the Secretariat team, Ella was highly commended by the judges.
The final award of the day went to the best overall delegation, won by the Cuban team (Sophie, Harrison and James) who received the prestigious Elizabeth Thomas Trophy.
Well done to all involved.
