M'KIS Middle School Students Outshine Competition at NISCMUN  

Last week, our M'KIS Middle School Model United Nations Club (MUN) participated in the Northbridge International School Cambodia MUN (NISCMUN) conference. Over the course of 3 days, students and delegates came together to debate important issues such as the Yemeni refugee crisis, the regulation of nuclear weapons, COVID-19 vaccination, and many more questions about world governance and peace. Together, students created resolutions and debated these issues, all in the hope of finding resolutions to complex, global challenges. 

This year, 14 regional schools attended the conference, with more than 250 delegates attending. The conference was run entirely online. 

Despite virtual learning, our MUN Club has been busy preparing for the conference by regularly meeting online with their advisors, Ms. Mathers and Mr. Herbert. Not only did our M'KIS representatives have a great performance across the board, but 5 of our students came home with certificates to recognize their performances!

Please give a big round of applause to the following M'KIS students who won awards at last week's conference: 

  • Best Delegate, Junior General Assembly 1: Jan Sen 
  • Best Speaker, Junior General Assembly 1: Mia 
  • Best Delegate, Junior Security Council: Prisha 
  • Best Speaker, Junior Security Council: Anvay 
  • Best Speaker, General Assembly 1: Rohan 
We would also like to recognize two 8th grade students, Rohan and Matthew, who attempted to debate with high school students. Their age didn't stop them from keeping up with their fellow debaters.

Congratulations to all of our students who participated, and special kudos to those that had stellar performances! We're so proud of you.
