Bond University hosted the 2018 Bond University High School Model United Nations (BUHMUN) Conference held over two days, May 24 and 25. A Model UN is a simulation-based learning exercise that will see student delegates adopt the persona of an allocated country and represent that country during a simulation of UN proceedings.
Year 12 students Taylor Jewell represented Brazil and Emma Thean represented Germany.
Each delegate had to prepare and submit a position paper detailing their representative country’s policies on Ending Poverty for Women and Children. During the proceedings the students utilised their position papers to prepare speeches and working papers.
At the end of the two day Model United Nations proceedings there were a couple of highly prized recognition such as a Diplomacy Award for different committees and the best written position paper.
Taylor Jewell was awarded a Diplomacy Award for Committee One and was given an honourable mention for her position paper.
The girls represented Redlands College with excellence and an ability to speak on areas of poverty and global injustices.
