Downside debate at MUN

Staff and pupils travelled to Cheadle Hulme during the weekend to take part in the 2016 Model United Nations conference, aka #MUNCH16. Huge congratulations to pupils who represented the school, particularly Stephane Augier who was ‘commended’ and Elsa Cody who performed especially well. 

MUN is an opportunity for truly independent study, and for pupils to gain vital skills for their future.  Pupils learn about countries around the world, and acquire the ability to clearly state an idea, and build consensus to achieve solutions to the global problems that will affect them in later life. We are delighted that pupils at Downside take such an interest in debating and continue to excel at conferences.
