What a happening year it has been! Honestly speaking if I am to talk straight from my heart there’s tons and tons that I can go on…and not to brag, but I bet you would ask me to go on and on…
If my memory isn’t deceiving me the year began with a brand-new feel – first year which had the eldest class as G10. We were still reveling in this new experience while as if in a flow we progressed towards the first time ever CAT Elections followed by the Investiture Ceremony of the elected members. Yes! It was an experience in itself; from the introduction of the CAT design to the process of Election to the culmination of the same by the Investiture. This further lead us to a number of routine yearly events and activities along with the academic progress.
But, this is not what I want to say from my heart…for now what is impatiently seeking expression from my mun is all about the SMIS MUN Event to be hosted on our campus in the month of November 2017. Yes, for the first time ever in the history of SMIS our students of G9 & 10 are working towards organizing this grand event where we have invited students from all schools, not just across Jamnagar, but also across Gujarat, and a few from outside Gujarat as well. After being successful in organizing in-school events these children seem quite confident with the organization of this public event. Being a constant observer of their mode of working and preparation, makes me feel like a proud person who finds herself to be fortunate not just for being associated with them through all these years but for also receiving enriching life-lessons through them.
Talking about the SMIS MUN Event – it’s an event jointly organized by SMIS and MUN World India. This is a Model United Nations conference which endeavors to provide students with a platform to hone their nascent skills and broaden their outlook. We look forward to furthering our objective of enhancing global awareness, promoting the power of expression and enlightening students about the importance of diplomacy through this conference. With three committees focusing on a range of different issues, SMIS MUN 2017 promises to be a great learning experience for all participating students from across the country.
A simulation of the actual United Nations, MUN will provide students with an opportunity to step into the shoes of delegates who represent the views of different countries while discussing various raging world affairs. They provide students with an excellent opportunity to hone skills of diplomacy such as lobbying, negotiation and collaborative problem solving while giving them a wonderful platform to refine their public speaking and regular communication skills.
Focusing on the development of the aforementioned skill sets and abilities through the concept of Model United Nations, it is a perfect opportunity for students to recognize the leaders hidden within them. With an interesting theme, innovative committees and thought provoking agendas, SMIS MUN 2017 provides the perfect platform for students to emulate real world leaders and solve raging world issues.
As we are no more school-going students and as we all majorly belonged to the 20th century schools we don’t stand a chance to either participate in this Event or even witness the same…sadL
But don’t lose hearts, the documentation of the entire event along with relevant experiential write-ups shall be posted on our website as soon the event finds its completion for all of you to get acquainted with the same.
As of now, so much from my mun…see you soon for more from my mun…
