World-beating debaters

5 February 2018

These Year 12 students have won prizes for their public speaking at the LSE Model United Nations Conference over the weekend.

A dozen Wally students went to the event attended by school pupils from across the EU.  They researched their 'commission' subject areas and the policy of the country they were to represent in advance.

Francesca (right) was judged 'Best Delegate' among her group of mainly male fellow commissioners, for her advocacy of Lithuania's policy on the migrant crisis. Juliette (left) was runner-up in her group for arguing India's response to climate change.

Thanks are due to the Head of English, Miss Mehaffey and the Head of History and Politics, Ms Windle for accompanying the students.
