The KL Model United Nations Trip
In the College’s third Model United Nations conference this year, twenty eager pupils from Shell to Lower Sixth once again donned their finest formal jackets to take part in an exciting session of the Kuala Lumpur MUN, a three-day conference comprising of fierce debate alongside thoughtful resolution writing.
The theme for the conference this year was ‘Living Through Change’ with topics such as integrating renewable energy sources into society; as well as the protection of the rights and privileges of the Rohingyan Muslims in Myanmar. Our pupils represented delegates from all over the world – from the UK, to Botswana to Micronesia – in committees such as the Human Rights Committee (HRC), the Economic and Social Committee (ECOSOC) and the Historical Security Council (HSC).
Congratulations to all new participants of the MUN team who actively spoke up for their respective countries’ positions, as well as the returning MUN delegates who are becoming increasingly skilled public speakers. Special credit to Rebecca Jaya Sudhir (Lower 6th) for writing a winning resolution in her first ever conference, as well as Caleb Sukh (Shell), representing the much-disputed Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), who was, perhaps ironically, recognised as the ‘Most Diplomatic Speaker’ in his committee, the ECOSOC.
With the increasing popularity of MUN at the College, I look forward to guiding our pupils for national and international conferences, as well as hosting our very own inter-school MUN conference in the near future. Watch this space!
