Invicta Students at United Nations Conference in Geneva
Invicta Politics and French students have just returned from a bilingual model UN Conference at the UN Buildings in Geneva. Invicta students represented delegations from Finland, Syria and San Marino in a series of high level debates, working hard to draft and pass resolutions and amendments within time constraints. Their focus was on the questions and issues concerning the UN millennium goals. Our language students worked as committee translators, translating French into English, in real time, during these discussions. The students tackled difficult contemporary questions such as the rights of journalists, the situation in Eastern Ukraine and the status of Palestine. Invicta students worked with fellow students from diverse countries and cultures including Turkey, Greece, the US and Martinique.
All students present held true to the UN principles of tolerance and internationalism, and showed the value and skill of young people in shaping the future.
Thank you to Mrs Ricks and Mr Saputo for taking the students to such a high profile event.
