The 15th Model United Nations Sessions (MUNS) was held last month at the Wyndham Crystal Palace, Cable Beach.

Co-sponsored by the Rotary Club of The Bahamas and The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, MUNS annually brings together high school students from around the country, and sometimes from the Turks and Caicos Islands, in a forum to simulate the United Nations General Assembly.


The objective of the event is to educate students about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the functions of the United Nations.

This year’s topics were: Euro Crisis: Regional or International Financial Reform, and Democracy in the Middle East: Challenge and Course.

SC Bootle Secondary School of Abaco, which represented China, won this year’s event.

The winners will travel to New York to hear the National Statement to the annual General Debate of the United Nations General Assembly delivered by The Bahamas’ Foreign Minister in September.

Second place winner was St Frances De Sayles (Germany) and third place winner was Queen’s College (USA).
