dcs-junior-mun-2“Although education is a right for all children, some still do not enjoy this privilege.” This was one of the reflections shared by a Year 5 student, during the very first Junior School Model United Nations conference held at Dulwich College Shanghai. For two days, Year 5 students took on the roles of delegates from countries as diverse as Sudan and Norway, Pakistan and Haiti, to look for solutions to the challenge of providing education around the globe.

The students discovered that there are various reasons why children in many countries are not able to access the education they deserve. From difficulties of transportation to a lack of school buildings, poorly trained teachers and the need for children to earn money for their families, there is a wide range of challenges in enabling all children to attend school.

During the conference, the children produced a range of interesting resolutions to this challenging problem, such as providing solar panel buses to transport children in rural areas to school and asking countries such as Norway and Finland to provide teacher training to countries with less developed systems.

The students were inspired by guest speaker, Peter Dalglish, who shared many stories about his experiences in educating children in poor countries around the world.
