KES pupils take part in the Aristotle College Model United Nations Conference

KES pupils take part in the Aristotle College Model United Nations Conference

The delegation of the UK participating in the 20th Aristotelio College Model United Nations Conference (ArcMUN), was our King Edward’s School delegation of Mufazzal Baig, Simon Cheung, George William, Ronav Jain, Zayd Syed, Kunal Chaubal, Henry Ballinger-Reed, and myself

The Aristotelio College MUN was hosted in Greece, and we were able to join virtually. The conference provided a great opportunity to sharpen invaluable skills, from research to problem-solving and communication. We can testify that it was brilliant and enjoyable experience. 

Having prepared in advance by studying the rules of procedure, and writing position papers for our committees, on the days of the conference we were greeted by snowfall. Rising beyond the challenges, debates in the committees ranged from nuclear threats at one point seeming to be raised in the Security Council, to the details of agendas such as healthcare in Africa, and female empowerment. 

Simon was awarded the Best Speaker Award in his committee. During the general assembly, we were informed at the last minute that we would be presenting our ambassadorial speech, and despite technical challenges, we delivered it to great applause. This was most encouraging as we look forward to the inaugural KES Model United Nations Conference (24-25 March), which will bring together Foundation Schools and promises to be special and exciting.

Thanks must be given to Ms Keloglou, for her phenomenal passion, commitment, and wealth of knowledge and experience. Thanks too must go to Aristotelio College, for organising, and for including us in the conference.
