Where is Grade 11?

MUN occurs once a year at SIS and is planned weeks ahead by the DP MUN club as well as many teachers. It takes place on a Friday replacing the usual schedule and classes. It seems as though many 11th-grade students have used this as an opportunity to skip school or we wonder if a sudden illness has gotten to them.

Although in Sweden past the age of 16 students have no obligation to go to school, this has in fact impacted the program of the day. A few committees were too small, obliging them to merge with another committee leaving the chairs Ahana, Sara, Romane, David, Michele, Fabian, Nekhil, Sebastian, Emilia, Wilhem, Saanvi, and Srihan to only chair half the time. It is quite unfortunate considering all of the training they did to become chairs that they were let down by all of these absences.

The Upper School Principal, Ms Öman, emailed parents this morning informing them of the work staff and students have put into this event. She also stated:

Participation in Model United Nations provides students with a unique platform to enhance their critical thinking, public speaking, and diplomatic skills. It exposes them to global issues, fosters an understanding of different perspectives, and encourages them to engage in thoughtful debates – all essential elements for their holistic development.

— Ms Öman

We the QQ hope that next year more people will show up and show their MUN peers some support!
