Maud selected as UN Women delegate
Maud was selected as a UN Women delegate for the UN Commission on the Status of Women this week - the UN's largest annual gathering of gender equality champions. Among the speakers is UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres. Maud is actively involved in King’s High’s own Model UN Society, and has taken part in inter-schools conferences. Ultimately, she hopes to follow in her aunt’s footsteps and work for the UN in the future.
Model UN at King's High
Chris Grier (History & Politics) reports: 'The Model United Nations group, made up of Year 11 - Upper Sixth students from King’s High and Warwick, meet every Friday afternoon to discuss a topic of concern to the international community. Each student adopts the role of a country, before proposing solutions, negotiating and debating in order to reach a resolution. The group is very alive to what is unfolding in Europe now. Among recent issues, the group have explored the conflicts in Ethiopia and Mali, the concerns over the development of autonomous weaponry, and the global energy crisis.'
