Hingham’s stellar Model UN team attended a conference trip last weekend in Boston. This weekend’s trip, Harvard Model United Nations, took place at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston. Members of the team stayed at the hotel and attended the conference during the day. The students and Mrs. Black, their adviser, left on Thursday and felt well-prepared for the conference. 

The members and students of the team simulate delegates to the United Nations and imitate United Nations committees. Learning about foreign relations and perspectives from other countries is all a part of the Model UN club. In addition to discussing foreign relations, students are encouraged to speak and exert their position in the conference meetings, which improves their overall public speaking skills. 

Junior member of Model Un from Marshfield High School Annabel McDonald says, “Model UN has been a great way for my friends and I to help our public speaking skills and it’s honestly really fun!” Although Annabel was not able to attend the Harvard Model United Nations trip this past weekend, she looks forward to her next trip. 

As Model UN students prepared for their conference, they remarked on their preparations and readiness for the trip. Junior UN from Hingham High School, Caroline Sullivan, left for the trip on Thursday the 26th and said, “I’m super excited for the trip. It’ll be my first time attending and I’m feeling pretty well prepared. I joined the club with a few of my friends and the trips are a great way to spend time with them. It’s also going to be a great way to bond with my teammates! But mostly, I’m just super excited to get the awesome experience of attending the trips and participating.” Caroline takes the role of the China committee on sustainable development. Different groups and students receive assigned foreign nations to argue for.  

As the students begin their conference this week, we wish the best of luck to everyone attending the trip and have the best time!
