Dear Parents, Students, and Teachers,
We have the pleasure to announce our VII United Nations Intercollegiate Model, the St. Michael’sSchool Model United Nations Conference (SMSMUN) 2016, that will take place on April 22nd and 23rd of 2016.  This year over 300 hundred students will be participating from fifteen (15) different schools, together with our own students from the MUN Club. Once again we have the privilege of celebrating our model in the Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE), as per the below schedule:

Friday, April 22nd          8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Saturday, April 23rd      9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

The main objective of our model is to engage students with worldwide issues affecting humanity, in order to find possible solutions to those problems.

We are proud to say that our twelfth grade students of the MUN Club are the Dias of thisConference.  The General Secretary of this year’s SMSMUN 2016 will be presided by our 11th grade students, Hampton Castillo. The remaining students of the Club will be participating as delegates of different countries, debating the issues within their commissions. (See the attached committees and subject matters). The commissions of ECOSOC are specially directed to students of 8th grade, who will participate in pairs.  For further information regarding our Model, please access our web page www.smsmun.org.
