BIS Students Attend THIMUN Conference

Annika Arora, MUN Student Leader, Bavarian International School e.V., Germany

From January 29 to February 3, 2017, eight of our IB students travelled to The Hague in the Netherlands to attend the THIMUN Conference. Model United Nations (MUN) is a club in which students can learn to debate and improve their public speaking skills. BIS has attended over seventeen conferences internationally and locally in the last several years in addition to hosting its own debating competition in 2014.

The THIMUN conference is the second-oldest MUN conference in the world and the largest in Europe. It includes over 3,500 participants from about 200 schools and 100 countries. Our students applied for the conference as early as August, and it has been a great honor to be accepted. We hope their acceptance will ensure that BIS will participate in the conference every year.

At the conference our team successfully represented the delegation of the Republic of Croatia in various General Assemblies, the Special Disarmament Conference, and the Human Rights Commission. Many thanks to MUN Directors Mrs. Kropman and Ms. St. Pierre for supervising and supporting us in this event!
