From September 10th to September 12th, The British Schools, Montevideo, hosted the 2nd THIMUN Latin America Conference. As happened last year, the event was a good opportunity for students from Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil to experiment what if feels like being a diplomat at the United Nations, putting forward different countries’ points of views on several issues extracted from the UN’s actual agenda. A group of St. Andrew’s students, from years 10, 11 and 12 had the chance to boost their leadership skills through the development of lobbying, public speaking and research abilities in relation to a wide variety of matters, ranging from human rights to the international war on drugs and the question of cyber surveillance on civilians.

Catalina A., Nicolás F., Valentina M., Manuela M., Manuel B., Ximena C., Malena C., Mateo N. and Alejo N. were outstanding in the different forums they participated in, performing the role of diplomats from Afghanistan, Honduras and Mali.
