These are the skills that Dulwich Puxi Junior School children have been practising this week at the Dulwich Primary Model United Nations hosted by our sister campus, Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong.
The Dulwich Primary Model United Nations is attended by Year 5 students from across Dulwich international campuses who meet, team, and then immediately commence working together as UN delegates representing 12 countries. This year, the Model United Nations focused on Sustainability Goal number 4: Quality education for all children… “Is education a right or a privilege?” was the question posed to all attending Model UN delegates. Students seeks to understand, find resolutions and solutions to this wide reaching and devastating global issue.
- Today, half of the world’s school age children are not able to learn because they do not have access to school due to conflict, famine, floods (climate change crisis) and, because of their gender.
- 245 million children currently live in conflict zones across the globe.
- By 2030, 62% of the world’s poorest children will live in conflict zones.
Thank you to the Junior School staff at Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong who put together this opportunity and to our Dulwich teachers who brought Year 5 together from across the world to participate in this important event.
The Dulwich approach of One College, Many Campuses drives collaboration between students and staff across the Dulwich group of schools (currently 12 in Asia with our 400 year old parent school, Dulwich College London) to the betterment of our students’ experience and Dulwich Primary Model United Nations is just one of the ways we ensure that our students are globally minded, internationally focused and well prepared to Graduate Worldwise.
