Model United Nations

The Hale Middle School Model United Nations Club meets to plan for the two annual Middle School Model United Nations conferences held at Northeastern University and Bentley College. Each year the conference topics change but they focus on major international issues that are being debated in the United Nations.

Model U.N. students choose countries to represent. They then research that country and its position on a specific issue at the conference. At the Model U.N. Conference, students then try to solve their issue from the perspective of their country by debating with fellow delegates and writing resolutions.

The conferences are held on two Saturdays, one in mid-November and the second in late February or early March. This is a wonderful program and all students who have any interest in international affairs and/or debate should join. All students are welcome at any time during the year. For more information, contact Mr. Keaveney, in Room 304.
