On 5th July the inaugural function for the 5th Model United Nations was conducted at DPS South from 10 am to 11.30 am with Mrs. Khan, Executive Secretary from the Income Tax Department as Chief Guest.

After 11.30 am the students went to their respective committees and with the help of resolution one of the agendas was discussed and debated in detail with students participating actively and with great enthusiasm. The students had come well prepared with research about their topic and the country allotted to them and participated in the debate of their respective agendas very well either by talking whenever they got an opportunity or by passing their opinions in writing to their chair person. The debate and discussion conducted were of very high order with interesting turns and of very high intellectual quality.

Finally, each committee passed resolutions on the third day taking majority into account. GA legal committee passed resolution as partial legalization of narcotics to be done and that native county which sends the ambassadors to different countries has to take the responsibility of sending good ambassadors and some changes are required in the protocols that are being followed by the Vienna convention.

Ecosoc passed a working paper making some amendments in the resolution paper. Ecoshum also passed a working paper with many amendments incorporated.

The All India Party Meet was by far very interesting wherein the students taking up the roles of politicians. The discussion about triple talaq was very interesting as the delegates themselves having gotten married many times. The discussion about the next Presidential candidate selection got into a hotter debate with the students aligning themselves along their party lines and supporting their candidate to be selected.

On the third day closing ceremony was conducted with Bishop Cotton Boys School being declared as winners and DPS East as runners up. Our students were awarded participation certificates. Overall, the experience was a very good exposure to our students as they were exposed to a very high quality debating.
