  • Students Return from MMUN in New York City

    Posted April 8, 2014

    Many congratulations to Oak Meadow's 2014 Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN) team that spent last weekend representing Oak Meadow as UN delegates in New York City.

    Being a member of the MMUN team is an extensive academic commitment. Assigned to represent the country of South Sudan, 6 Middle School students began preparing for the MMUN Conference in January. Under the guidance of Middle School teacher Barbara Orlowitz, the students met every Thursday and Saturday to research and work collaboratively on resolutions for global issues. The team even had an opportunity to interview an international resource via Skype, Makarand Sahasrabuddhe, who works with Oxfam and spent time in South Sudan. Each member of the team ultimately wrote a position paper focused on a specific topic to be presented in New York City.
