International School, Model United Nations is an academic activity that allows students to participate in a challenging simulation of a United Nations debate. Students as chairs and delegates discuss important on-going global issues using communication skills, vast knowledge and a diplomatic approach. Students representing a country are required to approach the issue using that country’s regulations and policies, which enables them to think from different perspectives.
International School’s ISMUN programme engages students in real-life situations. By empowering students to think critically, analytically and beyond personal and local perspectives, the International School gives the students the opportunity to make their voices heard and nurture international-mindedness.
