Students triumph at MUN

Last weekend, nine of our students attended a Model United Nations conference at St Paul’s Boys’ School, beginning Friday afternoon and concluding Sunday.

There were over 200 delegates from schools across London, including Eton, Westminster, Godolphin and Latymer, Merchant Taylor’s and City of London.  Five of our delegates represented the Ukraine (Daisy Pope, Nina Mattinson, Kaisha-Wade Speid, Evie Winter and Katie Charlton) and four represented Venezuela (Olympia Agapiou, Eleanor Press, Olivia Snaith and Zehra Sami).

All of our girls gave an excellent account of themselves and did themselves and the school proud. Congratulations, however, must go to Olivia Snaith (year 11), who won an award for most accurate representation of her country, and to Zehra Sami (year 12 ) who won an award for being the best novice speaker in her committee. These awards are a real accolade since out of over 200 delegates, only about 15 are awarded and Sydenham High pupils were awarded two.

Well done to all our delegates who were outstanding ambassadors for the school and who worked so hard for the event. Thank you to Mr Stevens and to Mrs Saunders who gave so generously of their time to support this conference over the weekend.
