The Model United Nations (MUN) program is a special feature within our Elementary School curriculum. In Grade 4, students are introduced to the United Nations, its purpose and structure. They represent different countries to debate issues around a selected UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG).

In Grade 5, students extend this understanding as they represent different countries around the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The experience culminates in a General Assembly which is a simulation of the actual proceedings in the United Nations.
