KES MUN on Diplomatic Service

KES MUN on Diplomatic Service
Awards & Achievements Co-Curricular Life

Our Model United Nations team (KES MUN) recently attended a new MUN event at Queen’s College, Taunton, joining 15 other schools from across the South West, who together represented over 35 countries.

KES MUN took 14 pupils to the event to represent three countries. Our most experienced Sixth Form delegates represented the USA, with further team members joining North Korea and India. Debate topics ranged from quantum computing to the universal availability of Insulin. The crisis debate was challenging to negotiate as it reflected current political tensions, but the pupils handled it very well and were guided by an expert Secretary General in the General Assembly.

Our USA delegation won Best Delegation (first place) for the whole conference, with KES pupils also coming away with a host of individual awards.

  • Theodore Spaliviero-Shaw, Year 13 won Best Delegate in the Security Council committee (USA)
  • Grace Burn, Year 13 won Highly Commended in the Economics committee (USA)
  • Jacob Coutts, Year 13 won Highly Commended in the Politics committee (USA)
  • Jacob Cooper, Year 12 won Best Delegate in the Disarmament committee (North Korea)
  • Barnaby Frith, Year 10 won Commended Delegate in the Economics committee (North Korea)

Many thanks to Dr Wainer and Mr Ford for accompanying the team.
