World view

International Connections A secondary school delegation from Townsville is headed to Shanghai for a mock United Nations conference.

Mock United Nations Conference Heatley Secondary College CISSMUN students Madison Campbell and Ross-Leigh McIntosh, along with Head of Teaching and Learning & International Education, Rachael Pearson, are headed overseas this January. Together they will travel to Shanghai as part of a Townsville secondary school delegation to participate in the Concordia International School’s Mock United Nations Conference (CISSMUN). The trio will join representatives from Pimlico, Kirwan and William Ross State High Schools. The aim of a mock United Nations conference is to emulate the processes of the real UN, so each delegation will take on the role of a nation.

The Townsville delegation has been assigned to Chile and must consider this country’s values as they debate world issues. Upon their return to school for 2020, the students will host their own mock United Nations conference for Townsville students.
