BCB also attended for the first time the Model United Nations simulation, which happened on December 10th and 11th 2021, at St. Paul’s, with several international students representing countries in different committees. Many students were not able to take part as they were travelling for holidays, however BCB was well represented. As by the words of Mr. Ruiz, responsible for the ECA:
“Helena Miresh Y9B attended the last São Paulo Model United Nations on December 2021, she faced a huge challenge representing India in the Kashmir conflict debate on the Historical Security Council, if you know international politics you already notice she and the delegate representing Pakistan were the two main nations in the discussion, acting in her first MUN experience among students used to MUN simulations and upper classes. It was exceptionally difficult online and as a single delegation, making it even more difficult.
Despite all of it she was not intimidated and stood out to keep India's sovereignty, being one of the key players, drafting a resolution in favor of India and being able to amend a resolution presented by Pakistan. Outstanding performance in her first simulation! We are glad she positively represented BCB at the event and may it be the first of many to Helena and to our MUN crew. “
There was also the ECO Club ECA, where students learned and engaged on different, innovative and environmentally-friendly ideas and attitudes; and many more…
There were definitely some challenges (and they will never cease to exist), but as we can see, it was a successful first term: only possible with the hard work, dedication, and collaboration of both students and teachers.
Looking forward to term 2!
