Indian Educational School (IES) Kuwait sent 14 of its best diplomats to the newest session of Fahaheel Al Watanieh Indian Private School (FAIPS) -MUN-2019 hosted by FAIPS-DPS Kuwait on 12 and 13 April. It was a thrilling and exhilarating opportunity for the new starlets to shine through.
In this era of globalization, it is important to keep a finger on the pulse of the world. MUN or Model United Nations is an extracurricular activity where students exercise in research, public speaking and teamwork and they typically role-play delegates of the United Nations and simulate UN committees. (Model United Nations) is exactly as the name suggests – a recreation of the United Nations and how it functions.
FMUN had 4 committees working for the two days of the conference with over 100 delegates. The committees and agendas of this year’s sessions included:
- Legal Committee –State-sponsored terrorism
- Commission for the status of women – women in the military
- UN Security Council- Cyber warfare and Cyber terrorism
- And lastly, The European Union –Brexit
Whether it may be the advent of curbing the evils of state-sponsored terrorism or the ongoing crisis in Britain, or even dealing with the new age issues of cyberwarfare and cyberterrorism or protecting and encouraging women in all phases of life including the military, all of them could definitely say with pride and pleasure that this would be one of the finest moments in our lives, as all the experienced delegates had come back with another achievement under their name whereas the young, new delegates came back with the first taste of the MUN circuit and now hopes for more opportunities.
Bhavans was also awarded the overall champion ‘Best Delegation’ for another successful year in a row. IES Kuwait hopes to set their mark in MUN history and expand uncontrollably with no bound limits!
T. Premkumar, the principal, Bhavans Kuwait and N.K. Ramachandran Menon, the chairman, Bhavans Kuwait congratulated the champions wholeheartedly.
