The annual Model United Nations at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore was held from 10th -12th February 2012. This is one of the most prestigious events of its kind. There were a total of six committees with approximately 30 delegates per committee. Universities and schools from all over the world were participating, and one from India was Delhi Public School, RK Puram.
The delegation from the school, comprising 14 students and their teacher, Mrs.Shraboni Bhattacharya reached the city two days before the conference and had a spectacular time at Sentosa Island and Universal Studios. The event commenced with an opening ceremony where many renowned personalities, including a professor from the university itself shared a few words of wisdom with everyone. This was followed by a formal dinner where all the participants interacted with each other. The excitement and zeal during the following two days were palpable. Every delegate tried to out-perform the other and the tense hours and long sessions were interspersed with the social interactions with plenty of games and music.
In the closing ceremony, the chairs of every committee gave out the high commendations and the best delegate awards to the deserving candidates. DPS RK Puram made a clean sweep with 6 delegates getting high commendations and 5 others winning the best delegate trophy. The school won the coveted Best Delegation Award and returned home with their heads held high!
