To commemorate the occasion, delegates from our Lower 6 students staged a colourful and vibrant simulation of the biannual Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), role-playing various Heads of State and dignitaries, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Secretary General Baroness Patricia Scotland, President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo (Ghana), Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (Canada), Prime Minister Scott Harrison (Australia), President Julius Maada (Sierra Leone), Prime Minister Boris Johnson (United Kingdom), President Uhuru Kenyatta (United Kingdom), President Muhammadu Buhari (Nigeria), President Cyril Ramphosa (South Africa), Prime Minister Narendra Modi (India), Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern (New Zealand), President Yoweri Museveni (Uganda) & President Paul Kigame (Rwanda).
On Wednesday 16 March 2022, our students welcomed a Special Delegation from the British High Commission which included the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Her Excellency Harriet Thompson, to celebrate Commonwealth Day 2022.
TRRS Delegates deliberated on the merits of a fictional resolution, inviting Commonwealth countries to explore how the introduction of Decentralised Finance (DeFi) systems (i.e. block chains, crypto currencies, etc.) could impact both emerging & established Commonwealth economies.
In her remarks, Her Excellency Harriet Thompson highlighted the importance of dialogue between Commonwealth nations and the need for all voices to be heard and understood.
We are grateful to the British High Commission of Ghana for selecting our students to participate in this wonderful enrichment activity, providing them with a unique opportunity to apply their learning to real life scenarios and situations.
