OISMUN 2015

 

The eighth edition of our conference OISMUN (Oasis International School Model Unites Nations) took place from Saturday 7th to Wednesday 11th November. This year our conference was to encourage participants to take a stand but also action, an effective philosophy for international conflict and which may also extend to our daily lives.

 

The theme this year was "Let's open the way for sustainable development through freedom, equality and democracy" in English "Walk the talk: pave the way". To achieve these objectives, a long-term action plan is needed, and it is essential to incorporate the core values of the 21st century; freedom, equality and democracy in a world of increasingly global and inter- connected.

 

This eighth conference was a great success and for the first time we exceeded 350 participants and opened nine committees including two in French.

 

Of course like every year we have introduced new interesting and exciting ideas like special conference: Historical Committee which explores the events and conflicts of the past with the mentality of today. We also created an exclusive committee for our young direc- tors and journalists to give them the opportunity to improve their skills to debate while still fulfilling their respective roles. In addition, we improved the quality of the conference by adding preparatory workshops. And finally we have launched a new website dedicated to OISMUN, an indispensable tool for better international vision.

 

During these days our participants had the chance to meet members of the diplomatic corps of various countries who spoke before them to give them a point of view supported politically on the various themes of the conference.

 

The conference ended in beauty in the magnificent setting of Menestreli palace.

Solidarity and Water !

 

On Thursday October 29th, six students representing the PYP, MYP and DP, had the pleasure to visit a small village in EL MENIA governorate in Lower Egypt. Thanks to the generosity of the school’s community, Oasis school in partnership with the UNICEF and the Egyptian government, we were able to set 127 houses with running water, which concerns 636 individual. This action also helped to put children into schools in the village that had water problems.

 

The children have then visited the factory of water treatment and 3 houses that had running water installed. Hence they collected testimonies from the villagers. They are preparing now a presentation which will be given to the school’s community. We are waiting impatiently.
