On 27 to 31 January 2020, 13 Secondary students made their way to The Hague, Netherlands to battle their wits against more than 3,000 delegates from all over the world.
Speaking in front of a committee of 192 students in a hall is not an easy task. However, our students conquered their nerves and stood on the podium to speak for or against the resolution. All of them raised their points of information questioning the validity and the feasibility of the clauses.
If at the start of the conference their knees were quivering, not because of the chilly winter air but because they were a bundle of nerves, at the end of the conference was a complete 180-turn. All sang of pride and confidence, being able to contest other’s knowledge and prove theirs as well.
