Learning in the Global Classroom: LCC’s First Middle School Model UN

2015_16_LCC_Model_UN_037Model UN is an exciting and engaging club in which students simulate meetings at the
United Nations.

We are proud to announce that the first Model UN for Middle School was held at LCC. It was expertly organized and run by grade 12 student Lydia Barrios and grade 10 student Adam Vandenbussche. We would also like to thank Ms. Lamantia who organized the Senior School LCC Model UN.

Last Saturday, Middle School students took on the role of ambassadors, debated the European migrant crisis and drafted resolutions. Prior to the conferences, students conducted extensive research on the country they represented.

Here are a few comments:

The Model UN program is certainly an excellent way for Middle School students to discuss international conflicts and come up with resolutions for them as a group. Overall, it was a great experience, and I would be glad to participate in the Middle School Model UN again. – Domenico D’Amico ‘20

Le Model UN a été très amusant et une expérience très intéressante. J’ai appris beaucoup sur mon pays ainsi que le fonctionnement du Model UN. I enjoyed it very much and I am looking forward to other conferences. – Andrew Fata ‘19

Our Model UN conference was completely different from what I thought it would be. You don’t actually realize how many factors involve your stance on the resolution until you are actually in the conference. – Andrew Vandenbussche ‘19
