Model United Nations is where students represent a country discussing global issues affecting the world today. It’s a great way to make new friends and improve public speaking. Last Saturday, the 26th of September, 16 students from The High School alongside Ms. Wilson attended the annual TERMUN conference in Terenure College, representing Austria, Chile and Italy. Students from schools such as Wesley College, Blackrock College and St. Andrews also debated. All delegates from The High School participated in one of the 6 committees; Political 1, Political 2, Ecology and the Environment, Health and Youth, Disarmament or Human Rights, where they spoke on topics such as The Status of Women, The Right to Secondary Education and The Right to Euthanasia.
Congratulations to A. O’Flynn, I. Akinsuli, S. Hayes and J. Cosgrove who won ‘Distinguished Delegate’ awards for their excellent debating skills in their respective committees. MUN is on after school on Mondays and/or Thursdays in B1. Contact Ms. Wilson for more details.
