The two delegations, representing Saudi Arabia and Serbia, took part in a number of committees including Health, Africa and the Middle East. Many important issues were discussed such as the situation in Syria, child soldiers and women’s rights. Congratulations must go to Ophelia Moore who was a Highly Commended Delegate in the Health Committee representing Saudi Arabia.

On Saturday 8 March, 17 delegates from Years 9 to 13, representing China, Myanmar, Somalia, Colombia and Germany travelled to the City of London School for Boys (CLSMUN) for, what was for many, their first ever conference. Within a stone’s throw of St Paul’s Cathedral and next to the Millennium Bridge, important topics were debated and solutions adopted for topics such as the conflict in Mali, the status of the Falklands and the removal of landmines from post conflict zones.

Well done to Rupert Powell who was selected as the Best Delegate in the Special Conference discussing the balance between legitimate weapons research and the non-proliferation of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons representing the People’s Republic of China.
