Model United Nations
Model United Nations are globally acknowledged simulations of UN conferences which act as a splendid platform to harness one’s discoursing and diplomatic finesse. Notre Dame Academy, alongwith its Parents Teacher Association realised its significance and organised an NDA MUN on the 5th of February where students of class 8th were seen clad in the traditional apparel of their assigned nations and this divergence of views greatly succeeded in enriching our societal culture. A heated discussion ensued on the agenda of ‘human rights’ where the delegates put forth their country’s stance under the chairmanship of Shorya Subalakshmi (11 Sc A), Anukriti Trivedi (11 Arts), Elvira Mishra (11 Sc A) and Ishana Singh (12th Arts). Multiple laurels were bagged by the deserving students including Most Promising Speaker, Best Researcher, Best Presenter, Best Dressed Delegate, etc. Overall, it was a knowledgeable experience for all those who partook in this event and yielded highly fruitful results.
