This year a few MUN students from Grades 8 and 9 will be participating in the Havard Model United Nations in August. The HMUN is a forum for high school delegates to debate and discuss international issues such as the Status of Women, Child Abduction and Rights, Cybersecurity, among several others.
We have been attending extra classes after school to complete research on the committees and the topic. These classes are a platform for us to have our queries answered, decide on deadlines for our work, research, and discuss procedures.
On the 5th of July, the Neev Munners had their first after-school session for the Harvard Model United Nations. We worked together in our respective committees. In this session, we focused on reading the background guides. A background guide is an extremely factual document compiled by the directors of HMUN to help us get familiar with the committee and its related topic .
This first session in preparation for the HMUN has energised us. We are excited to work hard and want to do well!
