Model United Nations Debating

Teacher in Charge:  Ms Tarryn Harbour
Head:  Simphiwi Masilo
Deputy Head:  Masi Sesanti

In South Africa’s current political climate, indeed in the world’s political climate, it has become increasingly necessary to be aware of current affairs and dynamics. Rhenish’s Model United Nations (MUN) society provides the ideal platform for this knowledge by being both a source of information, and a space for debate.

The society has grown exponentially and it now sports a total of five members who have been to Johannesburg representing Rhenish’s MUN. This trip encompassed a week-long conference where declarations were drawn up, important hands were shaken and landmarks visited.

These conferences and opportunities have also been offered on a local scale. Each year, the society participates in approximately four major conferences during the 3rd and 4th term. Here, each team is assigned a country and tasked with arguing a motion in line with the policies of this nation.  MUN is an academic simulation of United Nations rules and procedures and a deeper insight into topical international issues and how they are being dealt with by different countries is fostered through this means of debating. 

This we have mastered with a degree of understanding and maturity which we can proudly claim to have learnt from both the MUN society and from Rhenish as a whole.
