Image Description

Canfordians have won a string of awards taking part in their second Model United Nations event.

Pupils representing India, Iran and Argentina debated the rise of political extremism, the rights of Palestinians and the dumping of plastic waste into the ocean were singled out for prizes at the event in Queen's Taunton in March. Michael Bryan won a Highly Commended Delegate award, while Max Glowacki, Lili Mikova, Yernur Niyetkaliyev, Barnaby Scudds and Felix Spowers were judged Commended Delegates. The team representing India also won a Commended Delegation award for their excellent performance across all six committees.

MUN co-ordinator Mark Rathbone commented: "It was impressive to see our pupils participating with such enthusiasm and commitment in this exciting inter-schools competition. I am delighted that so many of them received awards for their efforts. Many thanks to Clayesmore and Queen's Taunton for the superb organisation."

 It was the second time a team from Canford School had competed in a MUN event. In December seventeen pupils maintained Canford's strong track record at Clayesmore School 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.
