Hampton’s young debaters are going from strength to strength, with an impressive haul of awards at the RGS Guildford Model United Nations (MUN) conference, the second MUN event of the academic year.

MUN gives pupils the opportunity to engage in the key international issues of the day in a pupil-led simulation of the real United Nations and the RGS conference was no exception. The debaters dealt with an array of global topics, as well as a crisis about alien landings in Siberia. Committee topics up for debate included unexploded IEDs, dangers caused by space debris, international money laundering and a historical security council debate on the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979.

All the Hamptonians were superb ambassadors for their respective countries, and several of our delegates picked up awards at the conference including:

The delegation from France
Matthew Woodburn
Gabriel Kelly
Sam Trotman
Sam Govier
Adam Sizoo

The delegation from Burkino Faso
Avi Bhatt
Joshie Huntley
Cassian Brandreth-Stroud

A special congratulations to Third Year pupil Leander Koutsoudis-Bhuller, who won an outstanding delegate award as an intermediate debater for the French delegation, a fantastic achievement.

The team are now looking forward to attending Benenden MUN, the final conference of the term.
