When the world is brought to the brink of ruin, only the fast-thinking students of Bishop Grandin can save it! BG students participated in the annual University of Calgary High School Model United Nations, and represented the school in a wide variety of committees. In the various divisions of the General Assembly, issues ranged from nuclear weapons and disarmament in the Middle East to the safety of journalists, and the rights of children. Other issues included the global debt crisis and the on-going discussion over Somalia and its status to many as a failed state. Meanwhile, the United Nations Security Council was tasked with monitoring the progress of the chemical weapons disarmament of Syria. Thankfully, through skilled diplomacy and master statesmanship, Bishop Grandin students were able to pass key resolutions. All in all a lot of fun was had, and hopefully the simulated world was left as a better place.
