We appreciated guest speaker, John Caruana  making the return trip from Sale for the  evening.  He spoke about  Model United  Nations Assembly (MUNA). Young people are encouraged to learn about other countries and to develop an understanding of the                 workings of the United Nations. Delegates will also develop debating skills, gain self-confidence in public speaking and leadership skills.

Our Club is sponsoring 2 students from Carrum Downs Secondary College for the  MUNA weekend at Phillip Island  May 5 – 7, with  two workshops beforehand.  The  workshop at Mt. Eliza Secondary   College will be on Saturday, April 22, 9.30am to 1pm. The                     delegations will be discussing the  resolutions that will be debated with their counsellors and the MUNA district team. These workshops are designed to give the participants more understanding of the resolutions that they will be formally  debated over the  weekend.
