MUN ACTIVITIES

On Monday, February 27, 6 students and 2 staff will depart for Washington D.C. to participate in WAMUNC, an MUN conference. This conference will host 1300 American and international students. Our students have been preparing for several months for this conference. They are looking forward to making new friends, seeing snow, and learning about current global issues.

Parents: Mark your calendars! Students who are training as delegates for TAIMUN should be at school on Saturday, April 15 for a mini MUN session. They will practice resolutions, procedures and public speaking. The session will take place approximately 9:30 AM to 3:00PM with exact hours to be announced later. Students must bring their own lunch and drinks.

 The countdown is on. It is less than two months to TAIMUN. Remind the students who are delegates that they should be at training sessions after school on Mondays from now until April 17. Encourage them to come to practice, especially if they have experience with MUN. Discuss the committee and issues they will debate. Then debate current topics with them and ask questions about the country they represent.

模擬聯合國活動

2月27日星期一,AST將有6位同學與2位老師組成的代表團前往美國華盛頓特區參加WAMUNC模擬聯合國會議。這個會議將有來自美國及其他國家國際學生超過1300人參加。AST同學代表為參加這次會議已準備了好幾個月,同學們期待著能藉由這次機會結交新朋友,親自體驗雪景,同時學習最近全球關心議題。

家長請注意:若您的孩子在TAIMUN (台灣模擬聯合國) 擔任的是各國代表,請在家中日曆上標明4月15日星期六同學們須參加mini MUN (迷你模擬聯合國) 會議。迷你模聯會議約自上午9:30進行到下午3點,詳細時間表將另行公布。同學們將在當天的模擬會議中練習TAIMUN會議流程,實際體驗在大眾面前發表演說及相互辯論。當天學校不提供午餐,同學們請自行準備餐點及飲料到學校來。

本屆TAIMUN會議已進入倒數階段,剩下不到2個月就將舉行了。提醒擔任模擬各國代表的同學們,即日起至4月17日止,每星期一放學後務必參加模擬聯合國會議訓練。也請家長協助提醒同學們,即使他們已有參加MUN的經驗,也還需要多練習,才能在會議期間有最好的表現。同學們需要準備好自己在MUN委員會中的提案,與要討論的議題並且演練如何辯論。家長平常也可與同學們討論他們所在委員會的提案,並詢問他們對於所代表國家的一些相關問題。

家長如果需要進一步的資訊,歡迎與Ms. Wiebe老師聯絡。

感謝Sylvia Wiebe老師提供
