Last week we were delighted to once again host the Model UN Assembly, with the issue being discussed ‘Pathways to Peace: Addressing War, Conflict and International Security’.
Approximately 50 Year 10 and 11 students took part, and as hosts we welcomed 60 students from seven other schools.
The Model UN program replicates genuine UN debates. Each team represents a country and researches its history, politics, economics, peoples, international alignment and policies in current world affairs, before debating resolutions from each country’s point of view.
Our students were been well prepared by their teachers and it was wonderful to hear them speak with such confidence having thoroughly researched their country’s needs and formulated a position – whether as Rwanda, Peru, Iran, Sri Lanka, Russia, Norway, Colombia, Israel, Canada, the Czech Republic, or even as Australia!
What sensational learning for our students and for those from the many schools represented.
