BRVGS Goes To BAMUNC (Baltimore Area Model United Nations)!

15 students from 6 different BRVGS schools participated this past weekend in our first-ever Model United Nations conference.  Students were assigned to specific countries and to committees such as the Security Council and General Assembly. They prepared for the conference by creating fact sheets for their countries and writing position papers for their committee topics.  They boarded a charter bus at 5:00 AM on Saturday and spent the entire day at Mount St. Joseph¨s High School in Baltimore, working with students from a number of other schools on topics such as nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula and next steps for the Paris climate accord.  The event was fast-paced, very intense at times, and a great experience for our students, who did a wonderful job, and were troopers throughout the long day. BRVGS is very proud of these students, and we hope to participate in more Model UN events in upcoming years.
