On Saturday, 4th of September, Saint Brendan’s School held their annual Model United Nations Conference. Although we are returning to in-person events, said conference was held virtually via Zoom due to the ongoing pandemic. The conference was the third one of the year, after Crandon Model United Nations (CMUN), which was held in June. Our School had 23 students participating in the conference, two of which passed their resolutions on their corresponding committees, another two students from 3YL debuted in said conference and two others participated as chairs in the Security Council and General Assembly 3 (GA3).
