City students set for world affairs meeting

Students from Norwich will be among those debating global politics next week when they take part in Norfolk's first Model United Nations Conference.

Six schools and colleges will join together on Monday to give their students a chance to focus on current world affairs and global crises.

The event is being organised by Norfolk County Council, Dereham Sixth Form and the Schools Linking Network (SLN) and will take place at the Council Chamber at City Hall, Norwich from 9am to 3pm.

Year 12 students from Norwich's Open Academy and Thorpe St Andrew High School will join youngsters from Dereham Sixth Form; Downham Market College; Fakenham College; Hockwold and Methwold Community School at the conference.

Alison Thomas, cabinet member for children's services at Norfolk County Council, said: 'This is a unique opportunity for students across the county to explore global politics and relationships, develop their understanding of world affairs and learn about diplomacy.'
