On the first Saturday of March vacation, an intrepid group of 6th, 7th and 8th Grade students traveled to the Kingswood-Oxford School for their 6th annual Model UN event. Fourteen students from The Country School represented the countries of Great Britain or Iran in three different committee groups.
They discussed topics and drafted resolutions around the subjects of nuclear proliferation, global health, and human rights. The Country School delegation had a great day, filled with enthusiasm and collaboration with students from around the state and beyond.
Three students were recognized for their outstanding contributions in the committee work: 6th Graders Tessa B., Constance S. and Helen S. Congratulations to them and to all the delegates who made this event such a success. We are all looking forward to next March's event!!!
