Jain International Residential School (JIRS), Bengaluru had recently conducted INTRA- JIRS MUN (Model United Nations) 2017 which is a conference that provided a platform for students to exhibit their public speaking skills, critical thinking, and writing skills. In addition, students learnt about team work and leadership skills. The conference was organized on 23 and 24 August, 2017 which was inaugurated by JIRS CEO (Retd). Wing Commander K L Ganesh Sharma.
The senior members of Model United Nations of the school thoroughly planned the event guiding their juniors. All the students who participated in the event had exhilarating experience as it provided them an opportunity to develop an understanding of how different committees such as DISEC (Disarmament and Security Committee), HRC (Human Rights Council), and WHO (World Health Organization) function.
There were sixty-three delegates in each committee who were guided by the senior students to understand the event and how it functions. The event was indeed helpful in shaping them with confidence, zeal, critical thinking and also in mastering the art of diplomacy.
