First NZ tamariki to be attending the Montessori Model United Nations conference in New York this year
Students from Meraki Montessori are busy fundraising to get enough money to attend this year's Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN) Program in New York.
"The goal for UN Ambassadors is to foster the interests of their country while creating collaborative agreements with other member states. MMUN focuses on assisting the delegates to find common ground and create one consensus based resolution per topic. The committee work is based on collaboration and negotiation rather than debate. Skills that will last a lifetime.
MMUN encourages delegates to find their voice and take action to solve global issues that affect the world we share. MMUN is open to children from 9 years of age." says the Head of School, Rebecca Higham.
