For the second year in a row, an independent delegation comprised of mostly CDS students competed in Canada's most competitive Model United Nations conference: SSUNS (Secondary Schools’ United Nations Symposium). The conference, organized by the McGill student body, featured more than 1,300 delegates from countries all over the world. The entire delegation competed in the most advanced tier of MUN - high-level specialized and crisis committees.
Abraham Litwin-Logan ’19 was successful in winning an honorable mention in what is generally perceived to be the most challenging committee found in high school or university-level MUN committees, Ad Hoc. This style of committee requires delegates to adapt to topics that are only released to delegates with limited notice, therefore preventing preparation and research beforehand. The other 10 CDS delegates, made up of mostly Grade 11 students, were a force to be reckoned with in the face of formidable competition.
