The students of a city school at­tended a con­fer­ence on In­dian Model United Nations (INMUN) at New Delhi from Au­gust 23 to 25 dur­ing which they were ac­quainted with the role played by the United Nations in the pro­mo­tion of peace and de­vel­op­ment.

Or­gan­ised an­nu­ally by Ryan Group of In­sti­tu­tions, the INMUN con­fer­ence gave students an in­sight into how the UN works.

The five students of the city-based Ryan In­ter­na­tional School - Yashika Gupta, Man­sirat Singh, Ra­jat Gupta, Tan­isha Gupta and Harsahib Singh - rep­re­sented Qatar in the con­fer­ence.

The students dis­cussed var­i­ous for­eign poli­cies of the UN and par­tic­i­pated in the vot­ing for res­o­lu­tions to be passed. As del­e­gates of their coun­try the students pre­sented them­selves as ac­tive and re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zens of the lo­cal and global community.

School prin­ci­pal Parveena John lauded the UN model. “It is a unique plat­form and al­lows students to think crit­i­cally and de­velop com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills,” she said.
