Good evening from a cold, wet & windy Hague,
This morning our delegates were again in the thick of some heated and at times controversial debate. Zaki managed to persuade his council to vote against a resolution, Yomna totally discredited another delegate, taking him to point over a lack of knowledge and understanding of his topic, and Barsoum, Waleed, Summer, Nora, Ayah, Amel and Nada were all able to take the floor and defend clauses they had tabled as co-submittors in working papers. It is impressive to see our students stand strong and effectively communicate their thoughts and opinions, especially when put on the spot. Wednesday councils are always shortened to a half day, allowing schools to travel Amsterdam for the sightseeing however, unfortunately the weather is very unfavorable so we have decided to give the students some quiet time to finish off school work (teachers - there will benoexcuses when students get back). This evening we went to an indoor activities center where our students played Laser Tag and attempted go carting.Manyof our students need driving lessons – no need to say anymore.
