 On Saturday 1st April, and Sunday 2nd April, Harleen Rangisingh and Unity Fruean, both Year 11 students, represented AGGS at the Auckland Model United Nations 2017.

AMUN 2017 was attended by approximately 200 students from all around Auckland. Starting at 8.30am and finishing at 7pm; both days were fun filled with interactive workshops on public speaking and problem solving, compelling guest speakers such as Jacinda Ardern, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, to Rez Gardi (UoA Young NZer of the year 2017). The girls also met lots of new friends, and took part in exciting competitions.
The best part of all though, was being involved in meaningful conversations with like-minded individuals, and taking part in heated debates with other students who argued from the perspective of their given country on global issues. Topics discussed and debated ranged from the decriminalization of drugs, to the impact of automation on the workforce.
