Higher Education Challoner’s MUN Conference

Dear Parents/Guardians

I am writing to invite your son/daughter to participate in a Model United Nations Conference hosted by Dr. Challoner’s Grammar School being held on Sunday 28th January, 2018.

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.  I have benefited from Model United Nations as my school offers us the opportunity to participate in a range of different conferences (A conference is a MUN competition held by a particular school. For example HABS hold their own conference called HABSMUN).

The students will be debating a wide range of issues pertaining to the committee they are allocated. The agenda and timetable for the conference as well as other details for the day can be found at: https://challonersmun.com/c/conference

The cost of the conference is £15.00 per person. Please complete the form below confirming consent for your child and processing the payment of £15 by Friday 19th January, 2018. Students are to arrange for their own transportation to and from Dr. Challoner’s Grammar School – Chesham Rd, Amersham HP6 5HA (Map It)

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. 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 an interest in politics and enhance public speaking skills.

Yours faithfully,
