Just as the last LINK newsletter was being completed, LCS had a delegation of students from Grades 9 - 11 attending the LEMUN conference in Leiden, in the Netherlands.
Each student is assigned a country to represent and along with 400 other delegates must represent that assigned country and further its interests. The overall aim was to discuss global issues and pass resolutions to help move those issues on within an international framework. Important topics on the agenda included international recognition of diplomas and qualifications, ensuring the safe return of colonial treasures to their nations of origin, and issues around the export of weapons to active conflict areas. While attending the conference, LCS students honed their skills in a number of areas including public speaking, negotiation and debate.
This isn’t the only MUN news for this newsletter though. Last year, LCS submitted an entry for a coveted International Schools Award from the ISC Research organization. LCS was one of only 5 international schools to win an award in our category and it was awarded for our work in hosting the last MUN conference here in Ghana where over 150 students took part.
This news is timed well considering we will be hosting our next conference here in Ghana - the GHMUN conference where we expect over 120 students to take part. Look out on our social media for more news of this upcoming event.
