Hill House Pupils Shine at BISMUN Conference 2024

We are celebrating another triumphant outing as 12 Hill House pupils, spanning from Year 9 to Upper Sixth, participated in the recent BISMUN conference hosted by Kingswood School in Bath. The event, which unfolded over the weekend of March 1-3, 2024, brought together more than 400 children hailing from 40 schools across the country.

The conference got underway on Friday evening with an inspiring start, featuring thoughtful speeches from the Head Chairs. One of whom shared a poignant reflection on her parents' struggles in Turkey.

Representing France and the UAE, the Hill House delegates engaged in a weekend of intense debates across six different committees. Saturday's proceedings faced a brief delay due to snow, adding an unexpected twist to the Environment Committee's discussion on the impact of climate change. The climax of the event occurred on Sunday with the General Assembly, featuring a simulated crisis debate on how the UN would respond to the invasion of Lithuania by Russia.

All Hill House pupils actively participated in the discussions, showcasing their dedication and passion for global issues. Notably, several students received special recognition for their outstanding contributions:

Daisy De Roeck emerged as the standout delegate on her committee, earning her the presitgious gavel!

Commended Delegates:

  • Marianne Flack (Year 10 - Environment, UAE)
  • Isabel De Roeck (Year 10 - Environment, France)
  • Lexie Owens (Lower Sixth - Human Rights, France)
  • Hugh Hamilton-Plumb (Upper Sixth - Security Council, France)

Continuing the school's strong tradition of success at BISMUN, Daisy De Roeck (Year 11) emerged as the standout delegate on her committee, Science and Technology (France). She was honoured with a prestigious gavel, marking her as the best delegate on a committee that included nearly 50 students.

Congratulations to all the delegates for their commendable performances at Kingswood School and the BISMUN conference.
