The Model UN training session took place on Monday, October 15th, 2018. Students in Model UN were able to miss their classes for the day, given that their meeting was at Wyomissing Area High School. And before we jump into the trip, what is Model UN? Kaitlyn Macauley, a member of Model UN, had plenty to say on the subject. “It is like a form of debate. But you do debate as a team and it’s less formal. And you represent a country. For example, all the countries debate on an issue on, say, human trafficking, and each country develops its own opinion on it and they voice that opinion to the other countries. Then, at the end they all come to some sort of agreement.”
