WGHS participates in the Youth@SAIIA’s annual Model United Nations Conference.

On 18 June, three members of the WGHS Model United Nations participated in Youth@SAIIA’s annual Model United Nations Conference. The conference, centred around the refugee crisis in the current global pandemic, focused on three aspects: access to education, healthcare, and vaccines. It ran from 13:30 - 17:00.

In preparation for the conference, the society helped the team gather relevant information and structure their argument. Tara Roos, Anoyolo Mzazi and Cheyenne Viviers (all Grade 11 learners) represented Wynberg Girls’ High School as the delegates from Mexico. Over 50 countries participated, all represented by high school and university students. Tara Roos was awarded Best Speaker.
