The group of LU students who attended the MUN conference.

CAY HILL–Learning Unlimited (LU) Preparatory School was represented at a four-day Model United Nations (MUN) Conference in Boston in late January. This was the second time the school was represented at the conference.

  A total of 12 10, 11 and 12 graders left St. Maarten on January 27, for the forum. The conference was hosted by Harvard and was said to be one of the biggest international MUN conferences. LU said in a press release on Monday that it was also a very competitive conference.

  During the conference delegates debated issues related to global problems. “It was a wonderful learning experience not only about the United Nations but also about networking, debating and teamwork,” LU said in the release.

  Participants included American students and participants from Australia, UAE, India, Poland and Greece amongst others. The conference was an “impressive learning experiences,” LU said. “We learned about the United Nations, what it stands for and all its procedures.”

  It was LU’s MUN Club President Bodine Beentjes’ last participation in the forum, but Secretary Priti Budhrani will be continuing the endeavour next year as President of the Club. The Club is hoping to expand to include new members to enjoy a similar experience. The group thanked sponsors who helped them to make the initiative possible.
