Model United Nations of Saint George School (SGSMUN) prepares students to participate in National and International conferences held by Model United Nations in which official United Nations sessions are simulated. These consist of interactive sessions of the main commissions and committees of the United Nations and other regional and international multilateral organisms. Middle and High school students, known as “Delegates” of the country assigned, elaborate speeches, negotiate with allies and adversaries, develop strategies and resolve conflicts while following the rules of procedure and diplomatic protocol. Before the conference, students realize deep research on subjects to be held and exterior politics of the country they are to represent. The subjects are directly taken from the official United Nation’s agenda and other headlines of worldwide news.
Saint George School was one of the pioneer schools to add this program to their extracurricular activities in 2002. SGSMUN has participated in conferences at The Hague, Argentina, Washington D.C., and New York. It also participates every year in The International Conference of Latin America, known as CILA (Conferencia Internacional de Las Americas) which takes place in Dominican Republic.
Students who form part of SGSMUN learn to work in pairs and count on each other. SGSMUN opens the mind of the student to what is happening in the real world. They develop speech and research skills, are conscious of current events throughout the world , and are active global citizens who are tolerant, persuasive and true leaders. But above all they learn the importance of working together for a better world.
SGSMUN is a family working together for a bright tomorrow, starting now.
