Headmaster's Welcome Speech
The fourth annual Brentwood Model United Nations took place on Sunday, 10th March 2019.
The Model United Nations (MUN) groups at Brentwood aim to educate pupils about the world by asking them to take on new and different perspectives and opinions. We believe that the MUN helps students to become enterprising learners in an increasingly demanding and competitive world.
MUN is a fantastic event in which to be involved, as it develops students’ research, analytical and debating skills as well as broadening their appreciation for other cultures and political beliefs.
Students are assigned a country and a committee (from Security Council, Human Rights, Economic and Social Council, Environment and Health) and must write a resolution to one of the world’s major problems before debating, firstly individually within their committees and then as a team with the other delegates from their country in the General Assembly.
On 10th March 2019 up to 100 students debated key world issues from the perspective of a wide range of countries.
