“Honorable chair, esteemed delegates, the representative of ….”
Each December, MLIS-Wuhan (Grade 10 – 12) hosts a Model United Nations Conference open to other schools across the Maple Leaf system. Each of the past two years, MLFNS-Wuhan has enthusiastically participated.
This year, five students in Grade 6 – 9 joined the Model UN conference consisting of Maple Leaf students from the Wuhan and Xian High School campuses. Our students spent several weeks preparing their opening speeches, their proposals and resolutions, as well as learning the formalities of a Model UN conference.
Topics consisted of: resolving the situation in the South Sudan, creating a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East, and the right to digital privacy in the twenty-first century. Students worked collaboratively to critically think through various challenging situations, and attempted to created resolutions which might positively affect change in the world.
Our students demonstrated excellent participation levels and higher-level thinking. Great job everyone!
