Model United Nations (MUN) Success
This past week the ISS Model United Nations Team participated in the 10th annual CILA, International Model United Nations Conference in Punta Cana. This was a four day event at which students participated in the following three commissions: Bretton Woods (Financial and Monetary Fund), Security Council and Change Management Team. Their day began with a power breakfast at 6:30 am followed by the first work session of the conference from 8:00am until 12:30pm. The second work session of the day went from 2:30 pm until 6:30 pm and beyond. The students were involved in moderated and unmoderated debates as well as the writing and modifying of proposals until resolutions could be agreed upon by all.
Our MUN Team for this conference consisted of the following students: Lou Bouzonnet (Head Delegate) Lara Schembri, Martha Hildreth, Sam Vela, Kate Trofimova, Lisa Trofimova, Joshua Tanielian, Fabianny Silverio, Brandon Hay, Alessio Galluzzi, Simon Vela, P. J. Follman and Volney Hildreth.
The highlight of the conference was most definitely the awards ceremony, where Lara Schembri and Martha Hildreth representing the delegation of India won the Honor Award for their outstanding work in the Bretton Woods commission. The competition was tough but our ladies pulled it off in true ISS style.
I'm incredibly proud to be the MUN advisor to a group of such outstanding, motivated and dedicated individuals, collaborating to make the world a better place for us all. Looking forward to participating in many more MUN events.

FUN, FUN, Fair!
A big thank you to our community for coming out and enjoying our Annual Fun Fair! There were a lot of smiles, laughs and tasty treats! Thank you very much to our PSG and specifically Diana Zarzosa and DeeDee Law for their huge effort to ensure the event was a success! I would also like to thank our "Think Global, Act Local" PBSL group for inviting and hosting the children from Casa Nino Felices. It was great meeting new friends and giving them an opportunity to join in our Fun Fair.
The grade 3 and 4 classes put on a Fantastic Economic Fair!
