"Model UN has been a great experience so far because we have learned effective ways to communicate our ideas. Along with that we have made new friends and we have loads of fun every Tuesday! " - by Payal and Simrit

Five students participated in the Churchill Model UN conference October 20 and 21, 2016. They learned how the General Assembly votes on topics, debates pertinent issues and how to create alliances and resolutions with other countries in the room. Amreet a seasoned Model UN participant represented Mandela on the Chinese Civil War Crisis Committee where she negotiated with other leaders alliances and strategies to keep power for her country.

We just finished up a fundraiser that will help students fund their next conference on Saturday February 25 and Sunday February 26, 2017. We are representing Moldova, Tajikistan and Samoa in the following General Assemblies: DISEC, ECOFIN and SOCHUM. On Tuesday’s after school from 3:30-5:00, students are gathering information on their countries foreign policy, current events, GDP, alliances and understanding their countries stance on issues related to their committee. They are required to research three topics for each committee and the U of C provides background guides to help them in honing their research skills. Some of the topics of interests they are researching for the conference is: “Protection of Civilians in UN Peacekeeping Operations” (DISEC), “Progress in controlling international financing of terrorist and criminal enterprises” (EXOFIN) and “Protection of medical and relief personnel and facilities in armed conflicts” (SOCHUM).
