United Nations Youth Group and Model United Nations in the Classroom

United Nations Youth is an organisation which fosters learning outside the classroom. It encourages students to think about world events
and international happenings through workshops and discussions. It leads events such as Model United Nations, Youth Declaration and
Diplomacy Competition, which all give students a chance to voice their opinions and develop their leadership skills. Students' thinking
broadens as a result of UN Youth holding events to raise awareness about current world issues.

A United Nations Youth Group was formed at the beginning of this year at Epsom Girls with over 60 students showing interest. Debates were
held during the year on topics such as Womens Rights and the Refugee Crisis. Through these debates, students got a chance to develop their
public speaking skills and learnt to critically analyse situations.

On 31st July 2016, a United Nations Youth event was held in Epsom Girls Grammar School in collaboration with Auckland Girls Grammar
School where students from all over Auckland came and participated in Model United Nations in the Classroom. This event entailed students
representing diferent countries in the UN and debating for their countries' rights and views. Students debated on Internet Governance and
DAESH . There was active participation by the students and they spent the day as prospective delegates and understood the process of a
UN Assembly meeting.
