Preliminary registration for area Middle Schools for the highly anticipated KO Model U.N. for Middle Schoolers (KOMUN) is now open. Since its founding in March 2012, KOMUN has attracted hundreds of students and their teachers from a wide range of public, private, charter, magnet and parochial schools throughout CT. Event registration is $80.00, non-refundable which includes the registration for the school plus one delegate. The event is to be held on Saturday, March 9, 2019 from 8:30-4:30 p.m. at the Kingswood Oxford School.
KOMUN is Kingswood Oxford’s Model UN for Middle Schools. This regional event introduces students in grades 6, 7, and 8 to global problems and challenges them to work collaboratively to solve them. Model UN gives students the opportunity to hone their public speaking and debate skills, while they use their expertise to build coalitions and pass resolutions.
KO history teacher and Model UN advisor Stacey Savin, the founder of KOMUN, believes that Middle School students are capable of debating sophisticated world issues. “The students continue to impress me year after year. They always come up with practical and creative solutions to global problems at the top of the world's agenda and headlining the news. Much of the success of the program rests with the many devoted Middle School teachers who give their students this incredible opportunity and work with them to better their understanding of the world and the problems we need to address.”
Located in West Hartford, CT just steps from Blue Back Square, Kingswood Oxford is a private school inspiring co-ed day students in grades 6-12 with a college preparatory curriculum. Empowered students become clear confident communicators, resourceful problem-solvers, and ethical leaders. KO: where unlimited potential meets endless opportunities.
