Last weekend a team of our Secondary students participated in the Model United Nations (MUN) competition hosted by Alice Smith School(KLASS) in Kuala Lumpur. An MUN competition normally is an educational simulation or academic activity in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations. MUN involves and teaches participants speaking, debating, and writing skills, in addition to critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities. It is meant to engage students and allow them to develop deeper understanding into current world issues.
For many of our students this was their first opportunity to take part in an MUN event. It is undoubtedly an invaluable experience hopefully they will continue to take part in future MUN events.
