The three-day Millennium Model United Nations (MMUN) ended on Saturday on a high note, with students being urged to follow their dreams.
On the concluding day, Roots Millennium Schools Central Executive Officer Chaudhry Faisal Mushtaq stressed upon the importance of ideas, initiatives and implementations.
He said a school’s environment should be conducive to the personal and professional development of the leaders of tomorrow.
The event — an initiative of the Roots College International Millennium Campus I-9/3 — attracted students from institutions across the country.
MMUM Secretary General Ali Haider Lodhi also encouraged the students present at the closing ceremony to pursue ideas and take the spirit of entrepreneurship forward, as opposed to pursing educational opportunities and careers abroad. Over 30 delegates were awarded the best diplomacy awards.
The team representing USA from Beaconhouse School System received the best delegation award for their outstanding presentation at the global village and public speaking at the committee sessions.
The other delegates who received awards represented China, Palestine and Egypt.
Farhan Amjad, who won an award, said, “The whole programme helped us in knowing the external affairs and gaining confidence.”
The day concluded with the much-anticipated “Skyfall-007” themed dinner.
The general ambiance of the event, with some well thought out décor arrangements, made the evening “memorable” for many delegates.
