The curtains have closed on the 3rd annual St Catherine’s Model United Nations (MUN) conference, marking the end of an event that saw participation from 19 schools, one of which came from the United States, and over 350 delegates. This year's conference, centered on the critical theme of Post-War Societies, challenged participants to delve into the complexities of nations currently embroiled in or recovering from conflict, highlighting the ever-present need for thoughtful consideration and action in our rapidly changing world.

The conference served as a vibrant forum for students from diverse backgrounds to come together, fostering a spirit of unity and collaboration. Over two days, these young minds were engaged in rigorous debates and discussions, covering a wide array of topics including humanitarian crises, healthcare, politics, education, and even issues as unique as superhero dilemmas. The goal was clear: to envision and work towards a world characterized by greater equality, unity, and justice—a world where every individual can thrive free from the shadows of misery. 

Students dive into the world of diplomacy with curiosity at the heart of every debate! At MUN conferences, we don't just talk about global issues; we explore them with an open mind and a thirst for understanding. Whether you're a seasoned delegate or a first-timer, your curiosity is your greatest tool in navigating the complexities of international relations. We encourage our students and visitors to embrace it, and watch how it transforms your perspective and your negotiations.

The event not only provided a platform for meaningful dialogue but also celebrated the remarkable talents of its participants. Special congratulations are extended to the individuals who stood out for their exceptional oratory skills, earning them the title of best speakers: Nancy L., Cecilia P., Iria C., Ariadne L., Frangiskos L.. S., and Bella L., with Eleanthi K. receiving an honourable mention. Their contributions significantly enriched the discussions, adding depth and insight to the conference's proceedings.

As we reflect on the success of the 3rd St Catherine’s MUN conference, it's evident that such gatherings are more than just academic exercises; they are crucial incubators for the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and changemakers. By encouraging young individuals to engage with global issues, understand the nuances of international relations, and propose innovative solutions, we take a step closer to realizing a world where peace, prosperity, and justice are not just ideals, but realities for all.

Huge shoutout to our teachers Ms Angelina Tsilimpiri and Mr Mike Revmata and the MUN students, who outdid themselves with a truly spectacular effort.    Thank you from us all at St Catherine's!
