Overseas Family School (MUNOFS)

Your child will learn to unleash powerful 21st century skill sets through our MUN programs:

  • critical and creative thinking
  • communication and persuasive speech
  • collaboration and team building
  • literacy: information, technology, media

MUN integration across our schools helps your child develop important life skills, including:

  • internationalism and intercultural awareness
  • global awareness through exploring global issues
  • diplomacy and flexibility
  • leadership and social skills
  • "walking in another's shoes"

All students in Grades 4 - 8 have MUN built into their curriculum, our High School students have options in Grades 11 - 12 to take the IB Global Politics course, and MUN ECA for Grades 9 -12.

Extra opportunities abound:

  • three international conferences hosted annually by OFS
  • other quality conferences within Singapore
  • other quality conferences overseas such as in Beijing, Shanghai, Taiwan, Kuala Lumpur.

Thousands of students have benefitted since we adopted this program, evidenced by overwhelmingly positive parent and student alumni feedback. Our MUN programs have even attracted the attention of the Department of Public Information - Outreach Division of the United Nations Headquarters in New York, and several research institutions.

Leadership and Growth

Taking on genuine leadership responsibilities, students learn by doing, developing their leadership skills through the experience of leading others in important roles.

There are many opportunities and graduated levels of difficulty in MUN to develop specialist and leadership skills, from Delegate roles to Chairs and Presidents of Committees. Secretaries General and Conference Managers have immense responsibilities for organising and running conferences.

International Court of Justice (ICJ) and International Criminal Court (ICC) afford those interested in law to authentically engage in real legal and court processes. Security Council and Advisory Panel push delegates to their limits as they struggle with very serious topics and engage with other top delegates from around the world.
