The Middle School MUN club attended their very first Model United Nations Conference this weekend. We had a wonderful time, and the students found that their background research, draft resolutions, and position papers served as good ammunition in their negotiations within their respective committees. Being a middle school conference, the complexity was reduced, and this helped our first time MUNers ease their way into the proceedings of such a conference. Many of our students are now eager to participate in more complex high school MUNs next year. The event was non-competitive, allowing each student to develop and practice skills at their own pace. The highlight was the alien “invasion” that was debated in the General Assembly. The students threw themselves into the hypothetical positions of their countries, and had a great time doing so as you can see from the photos.
