Debating – Royal Russel International MUN 2016
The MUN Society in Blackrock seems to grow exponentially by the years and this year is no different when 15 of our delegates visited the Royal Russell School in Croydon, London where they enjoyed 4 days of debate and international discussion with delegates from countries such as the USA, Italy, Japan and France.
The boys debated issues such as The Question of the Use of Rape in Warfare, Reform to the UN Peacekeepers, the Rights of Transgender People and Inter-State Espionage.

The standard of the conference was exceedingly high and Blackrock in this context, with Individual Distinguished Delegate Awards won by: Scott Donohoe (6th Year), John Heavey (6th Year), Mark Heavey (6th Year) and Simon Huggard (5th Year), Drummond McGinn, Shore Oluborode and Andrew Ryan (all T. Year) and Tom Dooley (3rd Year) are particularly praiseworthy.
I thank Mr. Smyth and Mr. Rowsome for their preparation and organisation of the boys.
