REMINDER: Enlighten MUN training program 2017-18 (Grade 7 & 8)

REMINDER: Enlighten MUN training program 2017-18 (Grade 7 & 8)

Dear parents,

It gives us immense pleasure in bringing to your notice that the third edition of Enlighten MUN is going to be conducted for students at Fountainhead School, Surat. After a highly successful first edition which was conducted for the students of Grade 5-9 in January, 2015 and 2016, we are proud to launch the programme for all students of Grades 7 and 8 in this academic year.

Enlighten MUN has been successfully conducted in over 60 institutions across the country including IIT-Bombay, IIM-Kozhikode, IIM-Calcutta, Gurukul School-Pune, Kaanger Valley Academy – Raipur, Shishukunj International School – Indore, RKKPS –Jodhpur, TGES (Wadi) – Rajkot, NES International School – Mumbai among several others reputed institutions.

Enlighten MUN is a 3 day programme focusing on the development of essential skill sets, MUN training as well as a full-fledged MUN simulation on the final day. Students develop essential life skills such as collaborative problem solving, public speaking, opinion development, group discussions, debating, global awareness and spontaneity among several others through various sessions involving practical, experiential as well as theoretical learning. This is followed by an introduction to the concept of MUNs, MUN procedure and then a complete MUN simulation on the final day of the workshop. The 3 day workshop cum MUN simulation prepares students for participation in MUNs (eg., for the upcoming FSMUN Chapter 4- Nov 2017) apart from orienting them towards several critical life skills through a range of practical exercises, games and events apart from theoretical learning.

The programme ensures holistic learning and was extremely well received by all the students who participated in January, 2015 and 2016. Enlighten MUN’s biggest success lies in its ability to expose students to an array of aspects related to the world and ensure comprehensive development of their all round abilities. It enhances communication skills, global awareness, confidence and several other skills.
