Sri Lanka Model United Nations Conference 2013
During the holidays, 30 students attended the 6th annual Sri Lanka Model United Nations Conference, held at Water’s Edge. SLMUN is the largest school Model United Nations in South Asia and the 3rd largest in the world, with over 1200 delegates. Our students have played a big part in the success of SLMUN since it started. This year ten of our students were members of the Executive Committee that organises the conference, which was again more than any other school. This included Insaf Bakeer Markar, Hishma Hafeez, Ornella Hisham, Ashhari Jayawardena and Vinu Samarasekera, who were all Chairs of different committees.
The students debated topics including Cyber Terrorism, the Millennium Development Goals, Religious Fundamentalism and Stem Cell Research. Six of our twelve delegates won awards for their outstanding performance in the conference, which is a superb achievement.
