Congratulations to the nine girls from MES who took part in the European Youth Parliament in Liverpool earlier this month.
The girls were competing against 13 other regional winning schools from across the UK, and for an unprecedented third time in four years, the Mary Erskine team was selected to represent the UK at an international forum, which will take place later this year.
The team, consisting of Katie Birrell, Anna Callahan, Jessica Craig, Claire Kumesu-Egri, Connie Longmate, Katy Macdonald, Jen Menigall, Nikki Reddy and Maddy Rennie, performed exceptionally well in the committee work and resolution writing stage and went on to dominate the floor debate for much of the two-day general assembly. They spoke spontaneously, often without notes, and were particularly good at listening to the debate and responding accordingly.
The girls demonstrated kindness, enthusiasm and respect, and encapsulated many of The Mary Erskine School values which are also central to the EYP ideal. Well done girls!
