Hyderabad: Oakridge International School, Gachibowli organised eighth primary model United Nations Programme (PMUN) recently at its campus. Sampreeth Reddy Samala, Founder & Managing Director of Worldview, was the chef guest Oakridge Primary Model United Nations (OAK PMUN) is a simulation of the United Nations where the student leaders step into the shoes of global delegates and diplomats with an attempt to solve real-world issues with the policies and perspectives of their assigned country.
At OAKPMUN students undergo many training and mock sessions before the event so that they will be able to understand the procedures including the flow of conference, voting process and the draft resolution. OAKPMUN 2018 witnessed student delegates of Grade IV and V working together in cooperation while discussing and brainstorming solutions to address the current global issues of climate change, child labour, illicit trade of small arms and light weapons among other topics.
Each student walked away with an understanding of the goals and functions of the United Nations. The participants in the specialised committees tested their own learning curves. Other than educating students about current affairs and topics in international relations, this two-day programme focussed on boosting students’ confidence. The school Principal Arjun Rao said, “The PMUN is one of our greatest academic events.
It introduces our youngest students to the ideals, values and functioning of the United Nations. He said that he was glad to provide Primary School students of city with a platform for this superlative learning experience.” In all 170 students from various schools attended the programme.
