“MUNA was amazing and changed my life.
After MUNA I was so inspired that instead of following science as a career, I went on to do international politics.”
~ Past Attendee
 
Purpose:
  • To simulate the working of the United Nations Assembly by having school teams of three Year 12 and 13 (Forms 6 and 7) students representing a particular UN country in debates on matters of world politics and social concern.

  • To develop bridges of goodwill for the furtherance of world peace and understanding.
Goals:
  • To develop in college students an awareness of the United Nations and the international situation of the countries of the world.
  • To enable students to improve their public speaking and debating skills.
  • To encourage students to make informed comments on world problems.

Club Planning:  
February        Secondary Schools are sent entry forms from Auckland Girls Grammar School. (Clubs are also advised.) Clubs should follow up with their affiliated secondary
schools and encourage a team(s) to participate. Agree and advise the amount of club contribution.
 
March            Entry forms returned to Auckland Girls Grammar School by participating schools.     Rotary Club of Auckland East contacts the sponsoring club to determine the
level of their sponsorship for invoicing.
 
April              Invoices will be sent by the Co-ordinating Club to the school and that school's sponsoring Rotary Club.
 
Costs             $250 per team of 3 students usually split Rotary Club $150-and the school $100-for the first team. Second and subsequent teams are usually paid for by the school at $250-. However, some clubs historically have paid all or part of the entry fee for further teams. Your club need agree the amounts with the school.
