Welcome to the Home of the Rotary District 9675 Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA)

 
What is MUNA?
 
MUNA is an annual event that is part of an International Rotary project to educate senior high school students on the United Nations organization. The way the U. N. plays a vital role in promoting world peace, in addition to improving health, education and living standards around the world.  
The event provides an excellent forum for students to develop and practise their public speaking skills whilst debating on topical world issues.
MUNA is held in many Rotary Districts around Australia. The team that places first in MUNA will be invited to compete at the Australian National MUNA at Old Parliament House in Canberra. (There will be financial support from Rotary)
 
Each team will be allocated a country
We will ask schools to nominate their preferred country with two alternate choices.
Teams will be notified by email of the country they have been allocated as well as the resolutions.
 
Research your country, form a stance on each resolution and choose your national costume
 As participants (now known as delegates) you are encouraged to do as much research as possible to improve your understanding of the country allocated and its issues. One delegate will be asked to present a one-minute speech detailing an overview of political, economic and social conditions in your country.
Use your research to form a stance on each resolution.  You will be entitled to propose any amendments to resolutions   for open debate at MUNA. (Due to time constraints, it is advised you limit these amendments to one or two resolutions). Be prepared to argue your position on each resolution and any of your amendments so you can convince the assembly to vote in your favour.
Delegates are also strongly encouraged to adopt their country’s national dress.  There will be a separate award to the team with the most appropriate/interesting national dress.
