Maria Montessori supported the work of the League of Nations and its successor, the United Nations, serves as a forum where peace could be created. She recognized the hope for peace lay in the education of children.
Montessori Model United Nations promotes students’ interest in the world around them and broadens the student’s knowledge in a variety of subjects. It teaches vital skills in problem-solving, conflict resolution, research, and communication. It also gives students and teachers the opportunity to meet interesting new people and make new friends.
This past month, we had the privilege to observe student delegates from Hudson Montessori School and around the world. The students gave speeches, prepared draft resolutions, negotiated with allies and adversaries, resolved conflicts, and navigated the Model UN conference rules of procedure. This was all accomplished in the interest of international cooperation to resolve problems that affect countries all over the world.
We want to congratulate all our delegates for their efforts and hard work, and thank our parents for their support and assistance that was given throughout this experience.
