No pupil should be out of class without an "out-of-class" slip or an appointment slip to see a member of the Guidance Staff. Guidance Staff will issue appointment slips and no pupil will be seen in class time without having made an appointment. If you need an appointment with a Guidance Teacher and you cannot find them (during registration, interval or lunchtime), let the Office know. Thank you. Mrs Ingham
The Bulletin: S6
Model United Nations is an activity in which participants assume the role of national ambassadors or representatives to debate and seek to solve global issues, Any UN body or agency can be simulated (the Security Council and General Assembly are the most popular). Some MUNs, last days and faithfully follow UN protocol, while others can take place for an hour.
It’s great fun, giving you the opportunity to meet new people. It also helps you develop and demonstrate key skills like public speaking, teamwork and negotiation which will look great on your CV.
Could any pupils interested in joining a Model UN group please come to a short meeting at break time on Monday 21st August in Ms Brannigan's room (RME 1). Thanks.
