Each year a team of Y10 and Y11 students will participate in a local Model United Nations conference.
A Model United Nations conference is an academic simulation of the United Nations where students play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real world issues with the policies and perspectives of their assigned country. For example, a student may be assigned the United Kingdom and will have to solve global topics such as nuclear non-proliferation or climate change from the policies and perspectives of the United Kingdom.
Preparing for and participating in a Model United Nations conference involves substantial researching, public speaking, debating, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. MUN helps students develop confidence in leading others, a stronger awareness of global issues, and the chance to make new friends from around the world.
Attending an MUN conference is a great educational as well as social experience!
