Each year, the capstone event with UNICEF is when students from Years 10-12 visit New York for the NAE-UNICEF Student Summit. Held this year from 11 to 17 July, PBIS student ambassadors, Jefta Timmer, Adam Vittek and Ilike Kumsova, attended the event and took a lead role in demonstrating how our school has made progress in addressing the SDGs as part of NAE’s annual Global Challenge. The students shared their global goals teaching project and discussed our key stage 3 students’ advocacy and support for refugees in collaboration with the UN Refugee Agency.
Part of the summit also involved an MUN event, held over two days at NAIS NY. Our students acted as representatives of different nations and debated resolutions. This year, three NAE students acted as Deputy MUN Chairs alongside our main MUN Chairs from New York University. All three PBIS students were very successful at the event, with Adam Vittek winning the best delegate award for his committee.
