Middle School Model United Nations Club (MSMUN)
Middle School Model United Nations (MSMUN) is a program that is designed for junior high school students. This program is an excellent platform for students to refine a number of skills including debating and public speaking skills, journalistic talents, leadership skills and conflict resolution. Through the MUN club at school, learners are rigorously trained in research, writing resolutions, debating in parliamentary style and lobbying for support from other delegates. The activities of the club closely simulate the fast moving world of diplomacy using 21st Century learning skills and approaches.
Tremendous support for the MSMUN delegates is given here at school to ensure they excel during the conference. Many lessons and experiences have been garnered through years of participation and we can only hope for the best outcome in this year’s club. We look forward to implementing a number of changes and improvements that will further enrich our MUN program and make it even more enjoyable for all the learners involved.
Due to its competitive nature and popularity among the students eligibility to this club is purely based on merit from a resolution writing challenge.
Apart from the main conference in January, delegates are expected to participate in Mock debates here at school as well as elsewhere. Delegates represent their countries through any of the following committees:
- Human Rights: This committee deals with international human rights concerns. EG: Human Trafficking.
- Ecology and Environment: This committee deals with all issues concerning the environment and ecosystems all over the world EG: Deforestation.
- Technology: This committee deals with technological issues around the world EG: E-waste
- Health: This deals with issues in healthcare or wellbeing of people. EG: Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
- Security Council: This deals with important matters and concerns of international security. EG: Terrorism
