Model United Nations

Model United Nations is an opportunity for a team of students to become diplomats for a weekend.  Representing either a country or a NGO, they come together with teams of students from other local schools to participate in a simulated session of a committee of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or General Assembly.  Students are required to investigate international issues and then seek to develop solutions to world problems through debate, deliberation and consultation.  Model United Nations presents a unique chance for students to explore current world issues, as well as to practise their communication and presentation skills.  The weekend also allows time for the delegates to get to know the representatives from other schools, from both the local area and further afield.
