Welcome

A brief message from the President

Dear Delegates,

Welcome to the MUN society at Dr Challoner's Grammar School.

Our society aims to replicate the real United Nations allowing students to experience international diplomacy, better their debating skills or even add a prestigious hobby to their CV.

The Model United Nations society at Dr Challoners Grammar School is unique. It truly is a society of the students, for the students, run by the students. It allows children of a multitude of ages, abilities and backgrounds to congregate and debate about the issues which are most important to them. These range from solving the Syrian refugee crisis to ending child slavery.

The society empowers the children of today with solutions for contemporary issues so they are ready to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Yet it is the ethos of the club which makes it truly magnificent. It gives our students a true exposure and makes them cognizant of the real world. Each delegate has their own personal drive for attending this society yet they all have one common aim. To make the world a better place. This sense of unity is a commonality both in the Challoners and United Nations framework.

This Website will serve as a main portal for schools who are new to MUN to use our videos and resources to help set up their own society. This will serve as a central area for you to access many tips from how to make an emotive speech to how to write a punchy resolution. It will also brief you about the details of our conference.

We look forward to you using this website and hope to see you at our conference next year.

You are the leaders of tomorrow.

Message from the Team Leader for Humanities

"Challoner's Model United Nations provides a superb platform for students to engage with global politics and debate with their peers about issues that matter. The regular meetings and conferences are invaluable in developing those skills of research, debate and analysis which are so central to a study of the Humanities. I encourage all students, both at Challoner's and beyond, to get involved."

"The new Challoner's MUN Society is a fantastic addition to the broad range of opportunities already offered to students at DCGS. It will provide a place for all students to engage with interesting, topical issues in a structured way and it's student-led ethos works extremely well alongside the character education and breadth of experiences encouraged by the Challoner's Baccalaureate.
