HS students participate in successful and challenging Model United Nations Conference

Scanned from a Xerox multifunction deviceThe High School lunchtime Model United Nations activity encourages students to learn parliamentary procedure for debate and,  learn how to write United Nations style resolutions on UN topics with a focus on The Hague Model United Nations ( THIMUN) theme. This year the focus for the THIMUN 5-day conference at the end of January was “ Millenium Goals “  and we were allocated the non – member delegation of African Union/ NEPAD which was a huge privilege as they are so involved in many of the issues. www.thimun.org

Our students had to work very hard to prepare and a selected team attended the 5 day conference in The Hague being called upon regularly to add opinions in debates as well as presenting issues themselves. They should be congratulated on their performance, working hard to maintain the St John’s reputation for excellence at this conference.
