Model United Nations

By getting involved in Model United Nations (MUN) activities, students learn to look outwards and discover the art of diplomacy and importance of international relations.

Students in Years 11–13 have the opportunity to participate in both regional and national MUN conferences, and may also apply to be part of the New Zealand delegation to the annual international MUN conference. A number of College students have participated at the highest level, and hugely enjoyed and greatly benefitted from the experience.

MUN is for anyone interested in politics, current affairs, public speaking and contemporary global issues, particularly relating to human rights, the environment, security and trade.
