OSH today held its first ever Model United Nations.
OSH year 10 pupils were divided into 21 delegations, from India to Syria and the USA to Brazil. After a series of rousing introductory speeches the delegations were given some time to prepare for committee debate and lobby accordingly. The four committees broke for debates on firearms control, climate change, cyber terrorism and the problem of terrorism in Syria. Just as the resolutions were being reported back to the general assembly a real time crisis erupted as Israel and Iran teetered on the brink of war. Despite some hawkish behaviour from some of the delegates, de-escalation was just about achieved and world peace sustained.
Congratulations to Russia, Iran, France and Greece (Baxter House and Potter House) for picking up the prizes.
Many thanks are due to our brilliant prefect team for acting as Secretary General, chairmen of the committees and special advisers to the delegations.
