On Wednesday and Thursday 10 BHS students from Years 10-12 took part in The Redbridge Model UN. This was held at Seven Kings High School along with 7 other local schools.
The conference was student-led and each student represented either a country or a member of the US cabinet in discussing solutions to climate change.
Students were required to research their perspective beforehand on the issue and consequently debate with other countries at the conference. The conference ended with the president of the USA deposed and several other really good ideas on how to solve climate change. If only this was a reality !
The students from BHS were: Radhika Patel (Year 12), Abdul Al-Shateri (Year 12), Nahidah Khan (Year 12), Shameela Fairooz (Year 10), Tyresa Pakeerathan (Year 10), Ettien Miller (Year 9), Sami Vieru (Year 9), Sumrah Ahmed (Year 9), Amber Joshi (Year 9) and Anjali Kareer (Year 9).
Although this was their first experience of a Model UN, three students won awards:
Abdul Al-Shateri – Best Delegate overall
Radhika Patel – Distinguished Delegate
Sumrah Ahmed – Honourable Mention for articulated responses (particularly impressive considering as a Year 9 student she was debating with far older students).
All students were fantastic representatives of BHS. Please congratulate any that you may teach.
