KOMUN (Kingswood Oxford Model U.N. for Middle Schools)
On Saturday, March 23, 2013, Kingswood Oxford School hosted KOMUN, the first-ever Model UN conference for middle school students in the Greater Hartford area.
Each middle school represented an assigned country in various mock UN committees, such as the Security Council, the UN Environment Programme, the World Health Organization, and the UN Commission on Human Rights, where they discussed current issues and proposed solutions.The day included lunch and an awards ceremony.
KOMUN is run by Stacey Savin, a KO history teacher and Model UN advisor for the past 10 years, as well as members of KO’s award-winning High School Model UN team. Stacey also teaches Model UN at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth during the summer.
