Nanja Joustra & Catelijne van Oijen
It was mid-June and the sun was shining outside but indoors ten delegates were hard at work debating issues in a variety of committees at Alkmaar’s IMUNA conference. Although this was the last MUN of the school year, our delegates showed no signs of being tired. Some delivered a speech for the first time and others had their first ever resolutions passed, but all showed great drive and enthusiasm throughout the weekend.
Throughout the year their MUN directors and former students of our school, Frans Rotteveel Mansveld, Arne-Jan Vos and Peter Sprietsma prepared, guided and shown by example how to participate in a MUN. A lot of thanks for their hard work and great sense of humour. It is wonderful to see that former students are very much involved in MUNs.
This year our MUN students participating in MUNs visited a number of conferences beside our own LEMUN conference. To name a few: BonaMUN, ScalaMUN, HagaMUN, IMUNA, and BALMUN in Rostock. We would like to thank all these delegates, student officers and trainers for making this year a great success. It’s been a MUNNY year!
