UN Youth holds an event each year called the Evatt Competition. It mimics the UN Security Council and students work in pairs as delegates of these countries to debate matters of international significance. This year the Geelong round was held at Clonard and eight of our Year 10 and 11 students competed. They were allocated the countries of the United Kingdom, Norway, Albania and Brazil. The resolutions they debated considered ideas of Extradition and Political Dynasty.
The day required students to negotiate with other countries to consider various amendments, present their own countries' response to the resolutions and vote in favour or against the UN adopting the recommendations. Well done to Jude P, Kailen W, Thomas F and Benjamin H. Congratulations to Jaeger F, James D, Patrick R and Charlie S who made it through to the Semi-Finals held at Trinity College in Melbourne. We wish them all the best for the next round.
