Higher Education REIMUN Conference 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians

I am writing to invite your son/daughter to participate in a Model United Nations Conference hosted by Reigate Grammar School (REIMUN) being held on Saturday 22nd September 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). As a result, I feel that in order to aid the development of public speaking in the community and political engagement, I would like to introduce MUN to Madrassa and the community in general. This would be aimed at the pupils between 14 and 18 from both the ladies and gents sections to participate at REIMUN this year.

The cost of the conference is £20 per person to cover the costs of the delegation fees. Please fill in the form and you will then be re-directed to PayPal in order to make the payment. Please note we will require payment no later than  Friday 21st September 2018.  Please also confirm your attendance by email to admin@madressa.net

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 trip is non-residential and there will be a bus from Stanmore to take the students to Reigate. Alternatively Students may arrange to make their own way to the conference.  The coach will leave Hujjat Stanmore at 07:15 and we aim to return by 19:00. For those making their own way to the conference please get to Reigate Grammar School by 08:30.

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,


Ali Kermalli                                                                     Mukhtar Karim
