Model United Nations

PCIS secondary students can participate in Model United Nations (MUN) both at PCIS and at the PANAMUN annual conference.

This year's PANAMUN conference will be attended by 500 students from all over Latin America October 30 to November 1, 2013 and PCIS will represent the country of South Africa:

 The theme of this year’s conference, For Sustainable Development, stems from the idea of progress of all forms. In Panama, we have experienced first-hand the effects of rapid expansion and development. The issues that the delegates will be discussing are the very ones world leaders are scratching their heads over. From topics such as gun control to the disposal of e-waste, this year’s topics all aim to push delegates to their limits, and to lead us forward as a developed world. It is not only environmentally-friendly development that we aim to attain, but also development in marriage, gender and racial equality. We seek development that will affect the way we think about our world. It is development that allows free nations to believe in democracy, stability and political transparency. And most importantly, it is development towards a better, cleaner world.

Return to:

 is an academic simulation of the United Nations that educates participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda.

The participants role-play as diplomats representing a country or NGO in a simulated session of a committee of the United Nations, such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.

During a conference, participants must employ a variety of communication and critical thinking skills in order to represent the policies of their country. These skills include public speaking, group communication, research, policy analysis, active listening, negotiating, conflict resolution, note taking, and technical writing. (from Wikipedia).
