On Friday 31 May to Sunday 2 June 2019, 26 students from Y7-11 represented DC at the Australian International School Model United Nations Conference (AISMUN), where they were able to explore and investigate a variety of world issues and crises, and develop allies as a means of developing resolutions. Those who partook in the conference were able to experience how nations collaborate to solve world issues. These include, but are not limited to, establishing measures to eliminate the global drug trade, the situation in the Philippines, addressing the international status of Jerusalem and strengthening measures of protection for journalists in areas of armed conflict.
After intense debate on the clauses of the resolutions, amendments and speeches were delivered in order to analyse the situation in depth and come to long term and short term solutions. As a delegate, it is important to be diplomatic, and represent the country’s stance on the topic at hand. At the end of the three days, 3 students from DC received the award of Most Passionate Delegate. Overall, this was a great experience, and the conference as a whole rightly represented the theme of “Freedom is speech, and ignorance is slavery”.
