Year 11 pupil, Luna Middleton-Roy has been awarded the prestigious Best Delegate prize at the 2017 Cambridge University School’s Model United Nations (CUSMUN) conference. The conference, which took place between 15-17 September, once again showed Queen’s Gate pupils triumphing in the debating discipline.
Luna won the award by beating over 600 students who attended the three-day conference, including some of the School’s usual rivals such including St Paul’s School, Dulwich College and Haberdashers Aske’s Boys, and Schools from as far as away as Mongolia, India and the United Arab Emirates. This award reflects Luna’s well-honed skills in diplomacy and public-speaking, and her genuine engagement in tackling global issues, especially the rights of women. We are delighted that Luna has been awarded such an honourable award, and she is well-deserving of this outstanding recognition.
