Lister Students shine at the Model United Nations

8 year 10 students took part in the Model United Nations on the 6th and 7th of December. Model United Nations is a form of debate in which students simulate the United Nations and represent a given country and create solutions for world issues. This year Lister participated in the Global Classrooms MUN London in association UNA -USA the official United Nations Association of the USA and the Business Council of the United Nations. Our delegates participated in committees across a conference with an attendance of over 300 delegates discussing Global Health and Wellbeing. Harun Shekoni was given an award for Best Delegate and Nazeerah Patel also received an Honourable Mention Award. The entire delegation also received informal commendation awards in their sub committees for their public speaking and their contributions overall. This was a fantastic achievement for Lister MUN Society – and we are very proud of how well our students represented the school.

Emancipation of Expressionism

Year 11 GCSE Dance students were free to express themselves in their Emancipation of Expressionism Set work workshop lead by Lister alumni Ricardo Da Silva. Emancipation of Expressionism is studied by all GCSE Dance students as part of their theory exam. Ricardo taught a sequence from section 4 called “Empowerment’, performed to music by Olafur Arnalds. Our Students were fantastic and mastered the actions and the mood so much that they can write about it.

The Year 11s were very fortunate to have this workshop with Ricardo as he danced in the original piece a few years ago. Ricardo is a dancer with Boy Blue Entertainment and Just Us Dance Theatre.
