On the 28th of January 2016 St Paul’s College in Windhoek held an Extramural Fair. The Extramural Fair is an annual initiative of the school to host information exhibitions on the available extra-curricular activities on offer at the school.
The St. Paul’s Model UN Club in collaboration with the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Windhoek set up an exhibit to promote the prestigious international learning programme. UNIC Windhoek supported the MUN Club by providing banners, information materials and branded promotional items to be disseminated to potential candidates. Former delegates and an intern of the Centre remained on standby to answer questions to the soon-to-be Model UN Namibia (MUNNAM) delegates.
The 40minute information session allowed the students to sample wealth of information of the MUNNAM programme, annual conferences and general debating.
The Extramural Fair demonstrated to be an ideal platform to ensure the sustainability of the MUN Club at the school, as the former delegates completed their high school diploma, it is thus imperative to start up the recruitment process for new team members
St. Paul’s College has had great success at previous MUNNAM Conferences, the annual extramural fair sparked great interest amongst newcomers. The schools’ excellent performance and club activities are mentored by Mrs. Jenkins, the Deputy Principal of the school.
