Middle School Model of United Nations (ACAMUN) Conference at BaysideOn April 28-29, a group of 72 middle school students from 5 schools will participate in a Model of United Nations simulation hosted by SIS.

The  guiding principles of the actual United Nations, headquartered in New York, are facilitating cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights, and achievement of world peace. It is exactly these types of complex issues that our 33 young SIS delegates will discuss and debate over the course of the weekend. Representing Canada, India, Morocco, Costa Rica, the United States, South Africa, Israel, the Netherlands and the Russian Federation, they will debate topics such as;

  • International terrorism
  • Universal primary education
  • Preventing the use of torture and inhumane punishments
  • Global job crisis
  • Species extinction and endangerment
  • The effects of anarchy and piracy in Somalia
  • Nuclear crisis in Iran

Middle School Model of United Nations (ACAMUN) Conference at BaysideSince February, almost one-fourth of our middle school student body have been working for many hours researching their countries and major world issues, writing resolutions and practicing parliamentary debate procedures—all of this in addition to their school work and busy lives!

Middle School Model of United Nations (ACAMUN) Conference at BaysideThis year, the ACAMUN conference is student run and organized. High school student leaders, who have had prior MUN experience, serve as chairs of each committee and work painstakingly with our young middle school delegates to lead them through the debate process. They are also working hard on all aspects of planning and running this conference.

Led by Andrea Jarr, a group of five high school junior journalists will be documenting and photographing delegates as they discuss, debate and seek compromise inside and outside committee meetings. The ACAMUN Press Team will assemble 2 editions of the MUNchkin Press which will be published during the conference.
