Model United Nations (MUN) is dubbed “the best pretend” game of all time. Students play the role of world leaders and representatives of a country. After doing the research, students engage in debates and discussions, make alliances, write resolutions, and argue pro- and con- on various global issues such as climate change, immigration crisis, denuclearization, territorial disputes, child labor, etc. Each participant tries to relate as realistically as possible to the official position of their chosen country, putting aside their personal opinions, and trying to emphasize with their conditions. Students train their rhetorical abilities and get hands-on experiences in negotiations. Language of instruction will be English.

Mr. Dragoiu has taught Math and Physics at GESS since 2018 and has been involved in advising the MUN during his teaching career in the USA, Philippines, and Singapore. At each MUN conference, he is still amazed by the “outside of the box” solutions to some of the world problems presented by the students. “What you witness and experience during the MUN events is priceless.”.

As a Grade 10 homeroom teacher as well as of four foreign languages and political enthusiast, Natalie Hoffart knows that learning to discuss complex political issues is of utmost importance to resolve crises and to guarantee international stability and peace. She wants to engage students to develop deeper understanding into current world issues, think critically and allow them to “find their voice” through MUN.
