BGS MUN goes online

It's not only lessons that are being conducted remotely. Last week Bristol Grammar School's Model United Nations held their first ever online event, with sessions set to continue until the end of term. Read more in this report from BGS Sixth Form student Inigo.

MUN at BGS has arguably had one of its most successful years, no doubt due to the skilful management of the Upper Sixth secretariat. We took part in many conferences, representing a wide array of countries from Kazakhstan to France, debating some of the most pressing topics for the international community. The effort and skill of all those who have taken part is shown by the numerous individual and team successes we have achieved throughout the year. But for me, our biggest success has been adapting to the difficult circumstances that surround us right now.

Last week we held the first ever online MUN, it was widely attended by delegates from Year 11 and the Sixth Form. We debated the hypothetical issue of a future North Korea without the leadership of the Kim dynasty. That afternoon we continued to make MUN history by passing the first resolution to an issue in recent history. We all thoroughly enjoyed the fun and normality this session bought during these strange times and are delighted sessions will continue to run until the end of term.

We would also like to thank Dr Massey, without whom BGS MUN wouldn’t function even in normal circumstances. We look forward to another successful and innovative year and thank the departing Upper Sixth for all the work they have put into making this club as incredible as it is today.

We encourage anyone who is interested in current affairs to join us and wish the departing secretariat all the best for their futures.
