This week, a group of our Upper Elementary students traveled to New York City for the Montessori Model United Nations conference where they are representing the countries of Germany and Namibia.
Throughout the school year, our students have been meeting and preparing for this conference. They practiced for resolution meetings on each of the topics by identifying regional and political allies that we will use to obtain consensus on resolution ideas and positions. Last week, they completed one last check and organized all of the resources and binders for this week’s meetings.
On Wednesday, students arrived in New York with Ms. Cheri, Ms. Charlotte, and parent chaperones. They attended the opening ceremony, where over 3,000 people poured in to watch the flag procession.
Throughout the week, students have been participating in meetings and debates with other countries (also represented by Montessori students from around the country), along with exploring the many sights of New York! We are so glad they have this opportunity to be fully immersed in their learning and connect with other Montessori students.
