On September 28–29, 2019, four Tzu Chi School MUN delegates joined the British School Jakarta Model United Nations Conference (BSJMUN) 2019 at British School Jakarta. Our Grade 10 students, namely, Michael Denise, Bhimraj Bhuller, Hans Tengkono, and Edward Khoo Hartono were members of the Disarmament and International Security Committee.
Each delegate took home not only a heightened experience at debating and improved argumentation skills, but also a new set of friends and acquaintances who share the same interests and passions. MUN conferences provide an avenue for young minds to gain an awareness and adopt important attitudes for their lives and the people around them.
As the conference concluded, Tzu Chi School delegation received two distinctions for active and outstanding participation in the conference. Michael Denise was Tzu Chi School Delegation Wins BSJMUN 2019 awarded the Best Delegate for the General Assembly 1 Committee, while Bhimraj Bhuller as an Honourable Mention delegate in the same committee.
