INTERNATIONAL School Suva hosted its seventh Model United Nations conference yesterday.
Prominent schools such as Adi Cakobau School, International School Nadi, Marist Brothers High School, Saint Joseph's Secondary School, Suva Grammar School, and Yat Sen Secondary School participated in the first day of the conference.
The school's humanities and technologies HOD Milika Waqainabete said their main focus was to build young people's skills.
"We want students not only to appreciate but also have an awareness of global issues and then build certain skills in confidence, public speaking and research.
"This conference also helps them to negotiate, learn how to speak in a formal language because a lot of them have not been put in a place to speak formally and also learn how to be in a position where they resolve conflicts. So conflict-resolution is also what we want these students to work towards."
