Model UN This Weekend

Six high school students and their advisor, Shaughnessy Denton, left for O‘ahu today for the Pacific Model United Nations Conference.

From the PACMUN website:
Model United Nations is a simulation of the UN General Assembly and other multilateral bodies. In Model UN, students step into the shoes of ambassadors from UN member states to debate current issues on the organization’s agenda. While playing their roles as ambassadors, student “delegates” make speeches, prepare draft resolutions, negotiate with allies and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the Model UN conference rules of procedure – all in the interest of mobilizing “international cooperation” to resolve problems that affect countries all over the world.
Those attending with Mrs. Denton are: Andy Anderton '17, Josh Miller '16, Emma Schneck '16, Emily Sullivan '18, Manix Wolan '17, and Daniel Wu '16.
