All MY students took part in the first round of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“Maths science triviaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢. Selected students from round one participated in the final round.

Dear Students,

This is regarding theÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â FSMUN being organized on 24-25 Jan, 2015. I had earlier asked for applications for the FSMUN volunteers. This is the process that we followed to select the two key roles: the Secretary General (Executive Board) and the Director General (Organizing Committee).

After receiving the applications we first short listed the candidates for each of the two roles using the following two criteria:

a. Number of MUNs attended; performance in the MUNs as well as the variety of MUNs attended

b. Any organizing experience inside or outside of school

Using this we shortlisted 5 candidates for the DG position and 3 candidates for the SG position. All the candidates were then called for a short interview with a faculty committee where we looked at the following things:

– why do they want to take up this role?

– what makes them competent for this role?

– how would they handle difficult situations?

– what content knowledge do they have about their respective areas of work?

– how well would they be able to effectively lead teams?

The 3 member selection committee for this comprised of: Bhumika Parmar, Shezin Siganporia and Vardan Kabra.

While it was a close call in both the positions, this is what we decided upon:

Secretary General: Yash Lekhwani

Assistant Secretary General: Aashna Jain

Director General: Riya Shah

AssistantÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â DirectorÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â General: Shreya Thummar

Please note that these are the best choices that we could make given the limitations of time and information. We trust these candidates to do an effective job with the responsibility assigned to them. It is possible that they may make mistakes or errors of judgement. In case any of you feels that way then you may first approach them. In case you are still not satisfied then you may approach any of the three faculty members listed above or Ms. Subhalaxmi Iyer.

We hope that all students (and parents) will support this endeavor. We wish the student committee the best for the first FSMUN and we hope that it’s a grand success.

**Regards,
**
