Model United Nations
Academic Year 2018-19 saw the launch of our Al Faris Model United Nations (MUN) for students in Grades 9-12. MUN is a globally recognized extracurricular activity in many schools and universities where students assume the roles of countries and organizations represented in the United Nations in specific committees and debate about global issues. Our students have taken part in local debates as well as traveled to regional and international MUN conferences. The aims of an MUN conference are to encourage debate and sharing of views among students from different schools and of different ethnicities. Through the MUN, our students to gain an in-depth knowledge of global issues and practice their critical thinking and communication skills as well as develop an open-minded attitude.
