Thanks very much to Chloe Challis, Sienna Goldsmith, Montana Kranen, Alana Lopez Freeman, Erin Jones-Jacobson and Poppy Stewart who all participated in the Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) at Dromana Secondary College on Friday September 2nd. The topic for 2022 was Pathways to Peace: Addressing war, conflict and international security.
A Model United Nations runs over the full school day and is a creative simulation of the United Nations General Assembly in which students represent Member States of the UN. In small teams of students step into the shoes of country ambassadors and draw on negotiation and diplomacy skills to ensure the views of their country are heard. Students interact with other delegates during the caucus sessions, present their country’s position to the General Assembly and move amendments to the clauses of a Draft UN Resolution.
The Model UN is an opportunity for students to learn about international relations, the UN system and important global issues, in an engaging, dynamic environment, while developing negotiation and public speaking skills and working collaboratively with students from a diverse range of schools.
You all did a wonderful job representing the countries of Finland, Liberia and Pakistan.
A special thank you to Mr Box for organising and transporting students to and from the event.
