The SOS-HGIC Model United Nations Club serves as a platform for students’ rhetoric development, with a focus on encouraging international-mindedness in our school community by simulating the United Nations. The club provides an avenue for students to talk about issues of global significance at Friday evening meetings, which revolve around pertinent world issues. Students are engaged in activities that allow them to express their opinions in a welcoming and intellectually challenging space. The club also features at local and international conferences such as the Georgetown-Qatar Model United Nations Conference, Boston Model United Nations Conference and the recently registered National High School MUN Conference in New York, USA, Tema International School Model United Nations, and Ghana International School MUN Conference. Delegates are adequately prepared for conferences through discussions with experienced club executives, and receive support with resolution-making and consensus-building skills.
Once every three years, the MUN club hosts a conference, to which local sister schools are invited. Additionally, we have internal conferences such as the Model African Union Conference, which is held collaboratively with the Pan-African Club. Students are kept abreast on international affairs with weekly news updates through videos and on the club’s notice board. Membership is open to all students who are interested in improving their speaking and debating skills.
