Model United Nations (MUN)

The World of Model United Nations (MUN) at Box Hill School

Model United Nations at our school is more than just a co-curricular activity—it’s an opportunity for students to develop crucial life skills, become global citizens, and make a lasting impact. By participating in MUN, students will contribute positively to tackle the challenges of the future.

MUN embodies the true spirit of our IDEALS: Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service.

What is MUN?

MUN is a student-led simulation of the United Nations, the international organisation responsible for addressing global issues and fostering diplomacy among nations. Students take on the roles of delegates representing various countries and work together to tackle complex global challenges. Students engage in research, public speaking, negotiation, and consensus-building while learning about international relations and global affairs.

I am thrilled to share with you the incredible achievements of our Box Hill School Model United Nations team at the London School of Economics’ annual Model UN conference held from 15th to 17th March. Our students showcased their debating skills, professionalism, and passion for global issues during the event.

Our young delegates tackled a range of pressing topics, including.

–  Funding development programmes for clean drinking water to combat cholera
–  Regulation and disarmament in the Middle East during times of high regional tension
–  Improving access to education for refugees
–  Discussing issues and solutions around gender-based violence faced by displaced women during ongoing crises
–  Regulating the peaceful uses of outer space

the conference provided an enriching experience for all participants, especially our Year 10 and 11 students who attended their first Model UN event. Their dedication and poise were truly commendable. We are immensely proud to announce that three of our students received awards for best delegate:

  1. Josie H (Year 11)
  2. Daniel K (Year 10)
  3. Ekaterina C (Year 12)

These outstanding individuals demonstrated exceptional debating skills, diplomacy, and commitment to their respective committees. Moreover, we would like to express our gratitude to the three students who participated as assistant chairs during the conference. This role offered them valuable experience and skills that will undoubtedly benefit them in their future endeavours. In addition, four of our students had the unique opportunity to participate in special committees, such as the House of Commons, where they acted as individual members within the House of Commons. One student even took part in a crisis committee, where they had to compete against other students to run an army in order to win the Falklands War.

The Box Hill School Model United Nations team has once again proven their dedication, intelligence, and passion for global issues. We look forward to seeing their continued growth and success in future conferences.

Our students made significant contributions to the event. Katya’s role as the President of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Zac’s chairing of the Eco Finance Committee, and Benjamin’s performance all highlight the diverse talents and capabilities of the team. These experiences are valuable for their personal and professional development.

Congratulations to them for their achievements at the conference!
