Three teams completed in the 2017 Evatt Model United Nations Contest Regional Rounds. Our teams were the honourable delegates for:
England - Year 10 Aaron Korczowski and Simon Vuong
Uruguay - Year 12 Skye Laing and Lukas Matovinovic
Kazakhstan - Year 12 Finn Byrne and Ferris Hansen
Our Model United Nations Team of Lukas Matovinovic and Skye Laing are through to the Evatt Model United Nations Debating Semi Final as delegates for the United Kingdom at Queens College.
This is an amazingly high standard contest especially since Global Politics and Australian Politics are not part of our VCE offerings at KHS, students from independent schools who enter this contest are almost always students of these subjects. Our students who are knowledgeable global citizens, as delegates for their countries earnt their place in the semi final of this prestigious event.
Great communications skills and passion can take you far, our students gallantly and professionally debated, persuasively spoke, used diplomacy, negotiation skills with an in-depth understanding of current world affairs, in the regional rounds to make through to the semi final. We had 3 strong teams compete in the regional final. Skye and Lukas making it through to the Semi's the only Government school (not select entry) to compete on this semi final day.
The Kew High School community wishes the team the best of luck this Saturday at Queens College. I look forward to supporting these students on the day.
