Hampton’s young debaters impressed at the first Model United Nations (MUN) conference of the academic year. A team of twelve delegates took part in REIMUN27, held at Reigate Grammar School, representing the delegations of Japan and the Vatican City.

Hampton also provided three guest chairs for the SPECPOL, Environment and Health committees: Isaac Crowhurst, Sam Govier, and Thomas Perry. This was their first official chairing role, and all three marshalled the debate in their committees with expertise and calm authority.

There were several interesting and topical issues under debate, including the prohibition of weapons of mass destruction, abortion rights, the current coup in Niger and the illegal trade of medication. Hampton also had delegates on the Security Council and the Historical Security Council, debating the Ukrainian crisis and re-creating a simulation of the post World War II peace conferences, respectively.

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

Noah Kelly (Japan) – Highly commended – Health Committee
Rishi Vijayan (Vatican City) – Highly commended – Crisis Committee
