Cambridge Model United Nations
Ruthin School recently sent a team of five students to the inaugural Cambridge Model United Nations, held at the Stephen Perse Foundation. They attended the conference as delegates representing the United States of America, and debated with students from many schools across Europe in various councils, discussing topics such as the question of Sovereignty in the South China Sea, Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the Threat of Cluster Munitions.
This short trip was an opportunity for the students to debate and increase confidence in public speaking and also to gain a more in depth insight into the views of different states on specific issues. Despite none of the students from Ruthin School having never participated in a model UN before, most students managed to pass their resolutions despite strong opposition and Sui Ling was awarded Highly Commended Delegate.
