Day 6 (Oct 19, 2023)

PARENTS ARE INVITED TO THE FINAL MODEL UN DEBATE.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME, PLEASE JOIN US AT 5.10 PM IN THE GRADE 7 CLASSROOM.  

MODEL UN WILL CONTINUE NEXT TERM AT THE SAME TIME.  PLEASE CONTACT PAULINE FOR REGISTRATION INFORMATION. 

We are also planning an Inter-School Model UN event with 2 other independent schools in December.  More details to come soon.

The winners today were Tegh, Baoshi & Arshawn

Here is the topic of discussion next week: 

Countries have been polluting the oceans for a long time with plastic waste.  Because of this we have 2 giant plastic seas in the ocean leading to devastating impacts all over the oceans.  The clean up of this will cost a lot of money and countries should pay for this clean up in proportion to the pollution they have created.   

Here are the teams and the countries they represent: 

USA - Hawaii: Tegh & Anura

Dominican Republic: Chiara, Ella & Naya

Nigeria: Arya & Nora

(Baoshi is absent next week)

To prepare: 

1) Have your opening statements ready - talk about what your country's history is with waste, how you country has impacted the world and whether or not they think they are responsible for the waste islands.  DO RESEARCH.  

2) Do research into how much it is going to cost to clean it up.  Which country is currently working on cleaning it up? Who is paying for it? 

3) Have a list of demands for each country.  For example, if Dominican Republic wants USA and Nigeria to stop using plastic bags - research why they should stop and what are the alternatives.  Can USA make bags out of coconut fibre that they buy from Dominican Republic? 

Remember - come prepared with relevant facts and do research on your opponents so you are ready to keep the debate going.

Day 3 (Sep 28, 2023) 

MODEL UN WILL CONTINUE NEXT TERM AT THE SAME TIME.  PLEASE CONTACT PAULINE FOR REGISTRATION INFORMATION. 

We are also planning an Inter-School Model UN event with 2 other independent schools in December.  More details to come next week. 

We only had the Grade 5 girls this week as the Grade 6s were away for a sporting event.  

I am very happy to let you know that the girls totally nailed the debates. 

The Winner of our debate this week was Chiara who represented South Africa fantastically.  

Here is the topic of discussion next week: 

Governments should compensate their citizens for racial inequality.  

Here are the teams and the countries they represent: 

Anura & Tegh: UK

Arshawn & Arya & Baoshi: Zambia

Nora & Chiara: Brunei

Naya & Ella: Russia

Here are some tips on what to research: 

Look at the colonial past in all these countries, how did they overcome that and what kind of racial policies do they have? Look at the income levels in these countries and if there is a difference between different races.  Then step back and look at the bigger picture of racial inequalities around the world and see where your country stands with that.  Can they afford change on their own or do they need money from others?  You really have to research history to understand this topic. 

Here are the slides on Rebuttals: 

 

 

Day 2 (Sep 21, 2023)

Our first debate was a complete success.  This week we focussed on negotiation and how to make a deal.  I am happy to say that all 4 teams traded resources to get funds for education and worked very professionally together. 

Here is the topic of discussion next week: 

Should hunting animals be legal? 

Here are the teams and the countries they represent: 

Baoshi + Ella+ Arya: USA

Nora + Anura: Costa Rica

Arshawn + Naya: India

Tegh + Chiara: South Africa

They need to do research into what drives the practice in their countries, why do they allow hunting, how can they move towards responsible practices.  Pay special attention to the economic impact of each country's position.  I also want to see the speakers address their opponents professionally. 

Unlike last week, this is not a debate where you are making a deal for resources and funds, here you are trying to find a workable solution for the country you represent.  

 

Day 1 (Sep 14, 2023)

We had a super fun day and learned the basics of debating.  

Here is the topic of discussion next week: 

Primary education should be free in all countries.  

Here are the teams and the countries they represent: 

Tegh+Nora+Ella: Brazil

Baoshi + Naya: Japan

Anura +Arshawn: Benin

Chiara + Arya: Canada

For next week, they need to come prepared to represent their countries.  They need to have statistics and facts to support their country's positions.  If their countries cannot (or do not) provide education for free, they need to research why that is.  

A good start is to use this template

Please download the Handbook and bring a printed copy with you next week.
