Model UN 2017

Model UN 2017

Seventeen Canfordians took part in the Model United Nations on 2nd December at Clayesmore School.  Once again Canford maintained its strong track record in this inter-schools competition with over half of those taking part receiving awards for their debating and negotiating skills and Highly Commended Delegate awards for Barnaby Scudds and Connie Doxat.

Representing the USA, Italy and Myanmar, pupils debated issues including the Rohingya Refugee Crisis, the rights of journalists and oil extraction in the Arctic Ocean.

MUN co-ordinator Mark Rathbone commented: "It was impressive to see our pupils participating with such enthusiasm and commitment in this exciting event, and I am delighted that nine of them received awards for their efforts.  Many thanks to Clayesmore for organising another superb MUN event.”
