Braeburn at the Middle School Model United Nations

Last week, 16 of our students from Year 7/8, joined their 8 counterparts from Year 9 to form the Braeburn School delegation to the 24th Annual MSMUN Conference at UNON-Gigiri. Our students represented Benin, Gambia, Serbia, Trinidad and Tobago and Russia. We were fortunate to also have two student officer positions – Press Corps (Mahpara Khattak) and Security (Izaak Lumumba). 

Prior to the conference our students had worked very hard to prepare their resolutions as well as polishing their parliamentary procedure and debating skills. This paid off as for the first time in over 20 years of the program at the school we managed to have 5 out of 6 of our resolutions approved for the conference.  

At the conference, our crisp and executively dressed delegates battled it out in the conference rooms discussing various issues of global significance. They watched and listened to inspiring presentations by their fellow students, as well as motivational speakers from many different fields. They sharpened their debate skills, made new friends, improved their confidence and widened their awareness of global affairs. At the end of the day, some of them attended the closing dance at Hillcrest where they celebrated a week of hard work.

Braeburn scooped three prestigious awards: two for Best Delegate – Bereket Daniel and Akshit Shukla and one for Best Writer - Noah Molla (Year 9).MS-MUN Assembly

Congratulations to all our student delegates and their teachers; they did a superb job!
