MUNA Report

Paul Fielding —

There have been plenty of successes in relation to Model United Nations in Logan Park’s history, and this year was no exception.

This year, we had a large number of students attend the Dunedin Youth Forum (which is where students from across the city gathered to discuss ways that local government could provide services needed by teenagers), and the Otago/Southland Model United Nations (where over 150 young people represented an actual United Nations meeting). 

Sasha Freeman was elected to be Logan Park’s High School Ambassador for Otago, and George Sabonadiere was voted onto the Otago Regional Committee for UN Youth New Zealand, and he was the youngest member to be a part of the committee ever. 

Casper McGuire was selected out of hundreds of applicants to take part in the 2018 Pacific Project. He was one of 10 students chosen nationwide and traveled to Australia to compete in the UN Youth Australia National Conference and to Vanuatu for an educational study tour. 

Tyler Proctor was also selected to compete at the National Model United Nations event in Wellington where he represented the country of Comoros and their views and beliefs. All in all, Logan Park has been extremely well represented locally, nationally, and internationally by our amazing future diplomats and leaders.
