Shrewsbury School – Withington Model United Nations success

04 Jul 2019

Three Salopians travelled to Manchester to take part in the Withington MUN Conference. Once again, Shrewsbury debaters made their mark. They were accompanied by Mr Peach, Teacher in Charge of MUN.

Alex Sparkes (I L6) was named as the Outstanding Delegate in the Historical Committee and George Collings (Rb 4) was named as the Highly Commended Delegate in the Political Committee.

Alex was playing the role of Winston Churchill in the 1945 Cabinet, arguing against the Welfare State which was being proposed by his Labour colleagues.

George Collings represented Chile, as did Tom Bonthrone (SH L6) who was taking part in his first MUN Conference.
