On Tuesday, 10 May 2016, several students of Fairvale High had the privilege of participating in the Model United Nations in Schools (MUNIS) day. This day allowed us to debate about a certain topic in the same format that the United Nations General Assembly would. The primary topic revolved around the detrimental treatment of women in Sierra Leone. Each student represented countries from around the world – each one with different attitudes and perspectives on the issue.
Conflict stirred among countries whose views did not align with each other, leading to disputes and arguments. However, they were united by a single purpose – to mitigate the oppression of women. Over the course of several hours, the countries discussed a variety of strategies to combat the issue, with occasional banter and cheeky remarks. The convention eventually reached a conclusion with each country agreeing to contribute funds into educational reform and services specifically designed for women seeking help. In this conference, several of our students distinguished themselves with their strong speaking skills and received awards – a truly excellent effort! We thank UNSW for providing this unique opportunity to our students.
