Students Attend Model UN Conference

A group of The Studio students have attended the Model United Nations (MUN) conference at Atlantic College in Wales.

The United World Conference was held on the 28th – 30th January and invited key external speakers and twenty students from Birmingham, Liverpool and South Wales through the Associated Schools Programme.

Three Year 11 students at The Studio were invited to take on the role of delegates and represent different countries from across the globe. They debated topics ranging from political and economical issues to environmental controversies.

Year 11 student Redd attended the conference and said:

“The Model United Nations meeting really increased my international political understanding and I would definitely attend the conference again!”

Principal of The Studio, Mr McInerney accompanied the students on the visit with Spanish Teacher, Miss Mallo. She said:

“Our students gained a greater understanding of global issues and had the chance to improve the negotiation skills necessary in international relations. They enjoyed a whole variety of conferences and speeches, but moreover they had fun meeting young people from all over the world”.
