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.
