We also offer Model United Nations.
The Model United Nations (MUN) runs as a club every Thursday at d’Overbroeck’s and is a chance for students to understand how the United Nations works by researching and debating some of the biggest challenges in the world today. Students can familiarise themselves with global politics and international affairs by roleplaying as national representatives or ambassadors in meetings, just like the real thing, and gain knowledge, understanding, and empathy by interacting with their peers and adopting different viewpoints.
Some of the key skills gained by students include speech writing, public speaking and conflict resolution, as well as teamwork and collaboration. As part of the Nord Anglia family of schools, we become part of the UNICEF collaboration for Social Impact. The MUN is a prime example of an activity which helps students to understand their role in the world.
Students from all three d’Overbroeck’s sites (The International School, Years 7-11, and Sixth Form) gather, discuss and prepare for conferences.
