This February our South Africa Model United Nations program (SAMUN) revs up for the international Model UN competition in the USA. In a blog series this month, we will spotlight the talented and diverse students that participate in the program through the lens of one of their peers!
Read on for the latest updates on SAMUN and stay connected to learn more about our students!
SAMUN is a year long program – learn more about it here! – engages students from all 9 provinces in workshops and conferences where schools represent different countries to discuss policy, diplomacy and global issues. The workshops culminate in a national debate in South Africa which took place in October in Cape Town.
The winners this year were the ladies from the Mpumalanga province. The students hailed from both Penryn College & Sitintile Secondary and represented Ethiopia in the competition. Eight other students – one from each province – were selected to form the final team that heads to the US later in February.
While it is an honor to be selected for the international competition, all of our students in SAMUN benefit from this program and shine amongst their peers. Keep up with our Facebook and blog to see the students shaping the future of South Africa!
