“Eight
schools have been invited. The event involves  organizing students into
various committees and which are part of the UN.

particular community and they carry out a debate, discuss, raise ways to minimize
or amend some of the recommendations they can use  as resolutions,” Ms
Mataitini said.

“Students
from Yat Sen have been participating in this activity and they are really
enjoying their experiences. The knowledge they gain and how to carry out in
raising their voices and how it can be heard.”

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.
