PA Supports Students' at the Model European Council 2017

PA Supports Students' at the Model European Council 2017

No comments

The Parents’ Association is proud to have provided financial assistance for travel and lodging to students attending the Model European Council in Strasbourg in March. Ten students participated and it took place in the prestigious buildings of the Council of Europe.

The participating students represented Austria and Belgium as minsters during council sessions dedicated to amending draft legislation. There was also a student from our school who participated in the first MEC Media Team. Students heard from key note speaker Nadia Murad, current holder of the Sakharov Prize, and survivor of the IS Yazidi genocide. Students also were taken on a walking tour of Strasbourg, participated in urgent debates and press conferences and met students from other schools throughout Europe.

The Parents’ Association is proud to help students at the school with experiences that enhance their global learning experience.
