On September 23rd 6 Year 12 students visited Harrow International School to attend a boot-camp to help prepare them for the rigours of a real Model United Nations conference.
The MUN is designed to replicate the real UN as closely as possible and gives students the chance to debate real world issues and try to develop real, working solutions to the world’s problems. The six students learned the formality of a UN conference and were each assigned a country to represent. They then researched about their given country before presenting their stance on the issues being debated.
Although it was quite nerve wracking to stand up in front of strangers and debate difficult issues the students all performed really well and found the experience very enjoyable and thought provoking.
Regent’s students will be attending the upcoming 24th Bangkok MUN Conference soon and will be hoping to put in to practice some of the skills they learned at boot-camp.
