On Tuesday we played host to the Wairarapa's first Model United Nations, where Year 9 and 10 students researched and represented different countries, campaigning on global issues. Our students did so well, and held themselves against the others. Being in a room with such intelligent students was a rush, and a good time was had by all.
But why is this on the Arts Blog you say? Well, under the umbrella of Cultural Leaders, our group played host and ushered the delegates, looking after the various 'Cultural' groups in the room. Travis Brown and Alena-Rose Burt welcomed the guests, and Jasmine Turner added our own UN touch by translating the welcome into French.
Jasmine then spent the rest of the day making sure the delegates were watered and looked after.
Thank you so much to the Social Science department, and the Youth UN crew from Wellington for running the day, as well as our wonderful crew for 2012 hosting.
