Bishop’s team joins Model UN

Sixteen Bishop’s students participated in the San Diego County Junior Model United Nations Conference at the Institute for Peace and Justice at USD earlier this month.

The eighth- and ninth-grade students represented France, the Sudan and South Korea in a broad range of U.N. committees focusing on disarmament, conflict resolution, the rights of children and international health issues. The two-day simulation was the culminating activity of a semester-long elective at Bishop’s, Junior Model United Nations.

Freshman Frances Chen won an award as the outstanding delegate on Third Committee, and numerous students won commendations for outstanding performances and research.
