Fourteen members of Santa Margarita’s Model United Nations team recently attended the Royal Russell Model United Nations Conference held in East Croydon, United Kingdom.
During the conference, the students broke up into teams to represent the counties of Chile, Sudan and Kenya in a mock United Nations trial. Throughout the four-day conference, representatives from each country debated economic, political and social issues of international relevance.
Students Brad Smith and Emily Guirgis won individual performance awards and the students representing Kenya were recognized as an Outstanding Delegation.
In addition to the conference, the students were also able to tour London. They visited the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey.
The attending students were Nina Riegelsberger, Jack Bobruk, Alyssa Perkins, Emily Guirgis, Natalie Willis, Melissa Montes, Kate McNally, Anna Marie Jennings, Isabella deJesus, Ellen Liu, Brad Smith, Aneet Atwal, Nicole Gigliotti, and Ryan Moussav.
