On April 29th and 30th, 23 ISM students from across years 8, 9, and 10 took part in SAMUN, a Model United Nations conference based out of Sophia Antipolis.
For the first time this year, we had a select number of Year 8 students join us in a formal debate, with two of our students winning Best Delegate awards and Best Resolution awards in ECOSOC for their resolution on humanitarian aid to vulnerable communities. This is a wonderful achievement for our junior delegates!
Of our student participants from Year 9, one student was awarded Best Delegate in the Security Council, with his resolution on conflict settlement over strategic interests in the Arctic Circle passing unanimously. Another ISM student, representing Russia, was awarded Best Delegate in the Human Rights committee, a notable achievement. Special mention was also given to our delegate from Nepal, in the political committee, for her contributions to debate.
From Year 10, our students acted as chairpersons within committees, and they played their roles with the confidence and authority that befitted them.
The level of intellectual prowess displayed by our student delegates never fails to impress. The self-directed learning in evidence reflects a bright future for our political landscape. Well done to all students!
