Model United Nations Conference of The City School Islamabad motivate students to learn to solve global problems in 48 hours or less
Over 500 students participated in the Model United Nations activities organized by the Alumni Association of the City School (TCS). The three-day event was designed to build bridges between TCS alumni and the students.
The City School E-11 campus hosted the delegations and the Global Village opening ceremony was held at a local hotel. Delegations from various schools debated on a range of topics including the Rights and Responsibilities of Host Nations, Kashmir-Developing the Sixth Province of Pakistan and Dealing with Guerilla Warfare Against Terrorists. Many notable diplomats observed the proceedings and commended the students on their knowledge of global issues.
The Principal of the E-11 Campus, Ms. Mehwish Abrar spoke on about the activities and said, “A model UN motivates students to learn. It’s fun to pretend being a world leader solving the world’s most important problems in 48 hours or less. Our Model UN topics are designed to activate students’ imagination and creativity – activities that students are naturally inclined to do.”
The founder of the TCS Alumni Association, Ms. Itrat Rubab Haider spoke on the importance of connecting TCS alumni with the students of the current era.
“These Model UN activities will lead to the grand Alumni Diplomatic Conference on the 11th of March. The conference will be an opportunity to recognize, reward and celebrate the impact our alumni, from across Pakistan, are having in the community. We will be hosting leaders in education, senior representatives in businesses, local and international school heads, the public sector and community organizations to showcase TCS examples of excellence, share best practices and network.”
The highlight of the evening was the Global Village. Students represented their delegated country with flair through costumes, artifacts, performances, songs and style. The evening was vibrant with music, colors and activity as students from TCS and other high schools dressed in the customary attire of their countries and performed with zeal. The participants enjoyed a live musical performance at the end of the evening.
