Aiming high

21 February 2018

Congratulations to Francesca in Year 12 who has won a coveted work experience slot at the United Nations in Geneva. 

Earlier this month Francesca attended a Model UN Conference at the LSE where she was one of two Wally students to win a prize for their public speaking.

She has now been chosen to attend a six day placement to see the United Nations at work.  More than 200 students applied for one of the 35 places, and Francesca was one of the top eight candidates.

Students will be taken on guided tours, hear presentations and observe working sessions in action.  They will be given special access to UN libraries and publications departments and will then have the opportunity to ask questions of diplomats and ambassadors.

It's a fantastic opportunity to have won for yourself Francesca, we are confident you will make the most of it.
