LEH Model United Nations

Other

A group of 20 Hampton boys represented the delegations of USA, Israel, Iraq, Uganda and Syria at the recent LEH Model United Nations conference.

A range of contemporary topics were debated, including the prevention of extremist and racist beliefs, the protection of the global climate and the crisis of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. Delegates also had to work together to devise solutions to address a fictional tsunami crisis.

After three days of intense debating, five boys were recognised for their impressive contributions:

Highly commended awards were given to Fred Darley (representing Iraq), Nayaaz Hashim (representing Israel) and Alex Mehta (representing Israel).

Outstanding delegate awards were given to Egor Kaygorodov (representing Israel) and Dara Sanwal (representing Syria)

Head of Government & Politics, Miss Jenny Field applauded the boys’ efforts:

All of the Hampton delegates debated extremely well, showing confidence and knowledge. They also drew a lot of praise from the other schools taking part for their high levels of enthusiastic contribution to the General Assembly debates on Sunday.
