On the 15th of November, a total of 14 students represented Island School at the first ever ISSIAMUN hosted by ISSIA! Over the 11 hours of conference, the students clashed in ECOSOC and the US Senate over modern day political issues such as the remaining effects of colonialism and the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter demonstrations. As each session introduced more amendments, so did the clashes between delegates. All the participating delegates learned very valuable lessons at this conference; whether it be about the political issue they debated on, the procedures of MUN or their public speaking and debate skills. 4 students stood out at this conference with Airi Tachino, Serena Yoon, Ayahiko Usui and Ethan Yap all winning awards in their respective councils.
This was a very memorable experience for both beginner and veteran delegates setting them up for future external conferences later on this year!
