Model UN Conference 2019

On Thursday 10 October, De La Salle College hosted its fifth Model United Nations Conference – a highly anticipated event on the students’ calendar.

The topic for this year was, ‘Planet Oceans: Protecting the World’s Oceans, Seas and Marine Resources’.

This year, 103 Year 10–12 students from nine different schools participated – the largest delegation to date.

  • De La Salle College
  • Ivanhoe Grammar School
  • Parade College
  • Mazenod College
  • Sacred Heart Girls College, Oakleigh
  • Siena College
  • Caulfield Grammar
  • Lauriston Girls’ School
  • OLSH Bentleigh

As the host school, De La Salle had a very strong cohort of 29 students that participated on the day – a number of whom are now veterans of the diplomatic battlefield.

The participants are all to be congratulated on how well they represented the College – their knowledge of their allocated country’s position and history regarding marine conservation and resources was impressive and allowed for genuine critical engagement with other delegates during negotiations and moderated caucuses.
