Higher Education HABSMUN Conference 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians

I am writing to invite your son/daughter to participate in a Model United Nations Conference hosted by Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School (HABSMUN) being held 15th to the 17th of March, 2019.

Model United Nations (MUN) is a form of debating in which students are required to debate global issues from the point of view of a particular country. Students are given a different country and it is their job to represent that country opinion on a particular issue in the most accurate manner. For example a student may be required to represent America’s view on the continual use of Guantanamo Bay despite it breaking the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The students will be debating a wide range of issues pertaining to the committee they are allocated.

The cost of the conference is £63.00 per person. Please complete the form below confirming consent for your child and processing the payment of £63 by Wednesday 13th March, 2019.

The conference has a strict no alcohol and drug policy and thus any student caught in possession with any contraband will be expelled from the conference.

Delegates are to make their own way to the conference.

Date: 15th of March 2019

Time: 5pm to 8:30pm

Date: 16th of March 2019

Time: 9am to 5pm

Date 17th of March 2019

Time: 9am to 2:30pm

The address is:
The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School
Butterfly Lane, Elstree
United Kingdom

The dress code for the conference is suits and ties for Boys, and ‘smart’ for girls maintaining hijab.

I hope your child is able to attend this unique experience and will be the development in interest in politics and enhance public speaking skills.

Yours faithfully,

Mohammed Mahdi Karim
