After two years in a deep slumber, the MUN club has been reborn out of its ashes. Clubs and electives were disbanded from the formal school schedule beginning in the 2014-15 year, with only time during lunch or after school available for students to dedicate their efforts into creating a better PASB community. Because of this, the MUN club faded away, with dedicated delegates going to conferences but never meeting to expand their careers. The number of delegates going to conferences continuously dwindled until there were only four delegates and two chairs at SPMUN. But this is about to change.
By talking to other delegates and seeing schools reap the benefits of the effort they put in MUN training, Gustavo and I realized we needed to do something to expand and better qualify our MUN crew. We decided then to bring our club back to life. At first, the goal of the club was solely to group interested delegates and ensure our strong participation in conferences. As we received a greater number of interested students, we understood we have to offer them mock debates and workshops in order to bring success and grandeur to PASB’s MUN future. Starting in October, the MUN club has already featured a variety of debates, including a legalization of marijuana and legalization of abortion, in addition to a crisis about the topics. We plan on helping delegates write better resolutions, enhance their persuasive speaking skills and dive in depth into the world of international politics.
Furthermore, as strong representatives of the PASB core values, Gustavo and I are determined to embrace kindness and leadership in the MUN club. For this reason, we have reached out to provide the 8th grade students with an opportunity to participate in the South American Junior Conference, which will be April 7th through 9th at Graded School in São Paulo. Additionally, PASB delegates will have the opportunity to participate in the III MUN at the Military School of Salvador from December 3rd through 6th. We hope to help create a solid MUN foundation in these delegates and support their careers so that PASB may return to its former MUN Golden Age.
