Form 6 student Khalid successfully chaired the General Assembly Committee at the International Model United Nations (MUN) Conference in Alkmaar, Holland. Using his great wealth of MUN experience, Khalid effectively conducted and led the conference with confidence and some moments of wit.
The international conference, that attracted over 400 students from around the world, aims to build an understanding of current global challenges amongst the next generation of world leaders and thinkers. Fellow Oakhamians represented Poland during the event and debated a range of issues from rising tension in Korea, NATO relations with Ukraine to the refugee crisis by armed actions.
Laurence Ward, Head of Politics and lead teacher of MUN said, "Our student delegates negotiated and debated in an effective way winning great credit and accolade from the host school. Oakham students have been highly commended and their host families were delighted to accommodate them.”
MUN is one of over 125 activities on offer at Oakham and is a hugely varied and enjoyable activity. It gives Upper School students a unique understanding of present national and international issues and helps develop their leadership, communication, research, and debating skills.
