COBIS Art Competition - "Mother Nature and the Environment"
On 21st-25th March, Year 9 La Moraleja students went to Bucharest to compete for the 1st time in the COBIS Model United Nations event. We were excited, but nervous, as we knew we would be coming up against some really experienced debaters, some who were in year 11!
It was cold and snowing when we arrived, but our hosts made us feel most welcome and treated us to some lovely local meals and well as sightseeing trips to a traditional Romanian village, plus a visit to the ‘People’s Palace’ - the largest building in Europe and once home to the deposed communist dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu. Our 90 minute tour explored only 7% of the whole building!
The MUN event divided our students into 5 committees, from the Security council to Refugees agencies. We took on the roles of China and Ethiopia in order to structure our debates. It was great to see our students get stuck in almost immediately, making new friends and being unafraid to jump into lobbying, debate and resolution formation. By the second day Maria Jose was even submitting her own resolution to the judges.
As well as work we were treated to themed dinners, dancing and social events at the 5* hotel Intercontinental - I hope the students were able to find a good ‘work-life balance’ as they would in real life. We also met real diplomats and embassy staff who I hope inspired all the attendees to consider the merits of a career in diplomacy.
Well done once again to the team - you performed fantastically! Let’s hope this is the start of many MUN events to come

King’s College schools, ranked among the top international schools in Spain by EL MUNDO newspaper
King’s College schools of Madrid, Alicante and Murcia have been recognised among the best international schools in Spain by the RANKING DE LOS 100 MEJORES COLEGIOS, a highly respected publication that the Spanish newspaper EL MUNDO has issued every year since 1999.
While King’s College Madrid and King’s College Alicante have been consistently recognised in this ranking in the past, this is the first time King’s College Murcia has also been cited. This is due to the fact that this year the school in Murcia has reached its 10th anniversary and thus, has been able to apply for consideration in the Ranking.
