A group of our Year 9 leaders recently did an excellent job supporting the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal. They spent an hour at Waverley Gardens collecting for the annual appeal and found it a very rewarding experience.
Dina Diamantis, Alex Vu, Jacky Fulcher, Alison Hughes, Elma Fekovic, Ramzi Ghandour, Eftalya Coskun, Eddie Osmanovic, Domenic Suriano and Dulara Weerasinghe collectively raised well over three hundred dollars. Thanks to all of these students for taking the time out to support a very worthy cause and for representing the school so well.
On the weekend of the 30th April and 1st of May, two of our Year 11 students, Tommy Grounds and Kirsten Hallett, represented our College at the Model United Nations Assembly sponsored by the Moorleigh Rotary Club. MUNA is an International Rotary project which educates senior students about the way the United Nations organisation contributes to world peace, health, education and living standards. It gives students an opportunity to develop their debating skills as well as learn about the culture, customs and problems of the world’s nations.
2016 MUNA was held at the Victorian Parliament House with 41 teams of students representing 41 countries from all over the world. Our students, Tommy and Kirsten, were allocated to represent the country of Sudan requiring them to become acquainted with the history, culture, customs and current political situation of this country. The students worked closely with our English Coordinator, Daniela Szlawski, who coached them to understand the issues faced by the people of Sudan and to prepare a response to several resolutions representing the interests of the Sudanese people and other countries in their bloc.
It was a pleasure to see Tommy and Kirsten addressing the Assembly with great confidence on issues such as the rights of refugees, the use of drones and robots for military purposes and the development of renewable energy resources, all current issues facing countries all over the world.
“The Model United Nations Assembly was by far the best experience of my entire schooling so far. While I did GREATLY enjoy the political aspect of the debates, actually meeting the other delegates was the highlight of the experience.” – Tommy Grounds, Year 11
