The Estevan Rotary Club and the Estevan Comprehensive School co-sponsored two ECS students and one counselor to attend the 62nd Annual Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA) in Winnipeg in May.
The students prepared themselves by going over the various resolutions, by trying to understand their designated country’s perspective on the resolutions, and by preparing speeches and notes to use in selected committees and the assembly.
The resolutions included:1. Denuclearization of the Middle East. 2. Prevention of an arms race in outer space. 3. Combat the glorification of contemporary forms of racism, discrimination, and other related intolerances. 4. Protection of global climate.
The ECS students were impressed with the organization, preparation, and accommodation of the Winnipeg Rotary Club at the MUNA. The students were housed and fed at the Canadian Mennonite University campus.
The students discussed world affairs with 160 others students from Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Minnesota, & North Dakota.
It was an excellent conference that created new experiences, memories, and friendships that will last a lifetime.
