Last weekend was a momentous one for North Berwick High School: a group of pupils, from S3 to S6, attended the Model United Nations Conference at George Watson’s College in Edinburgh and were awarded the BEST DELEGATION prize, the first state school to achieve this honour! On top of that, Nathan Robertson in S6 was awarded the BEST DELEGATE prize! Please excuse my use of capital letters and exclamation marks; this is not something I normally do in my writing but on this occasion I feel it’s warranted. I am extremely proud of our young people, who were very impressive throughout the two day debate. NBHS pupils represented Cambodia and China and they argued the case for their countries’ interests extremely effectively. There were over 500 delegates at the Conference from schools all over the world, so the achievement of the NBHS pupils is massive. As well as congratulating our pupils, I would like to thank them for all their hard work, commitment, confidence and – on occasion – bravery. There were times during the weekend when our pupils really pushed themselves beyond their comfort zone and I know that they felt a huge sense of achievement when they did so. I would also like to thank Mrs Martin and her team for supporting and encouraging the NBHS pupils. You are all stars!
