From 20th February to 23rd February 2014, it was a great honor for our school to represent Tanzania at the 9th annual Model United Nations (MUN) hosted by Georgetown-Qatar. Tanzania was one among the twenty countries chosen to participate, and our school represented Tanzania this year.

Thirty six schools from 26 countries, represented by about 300 students gathered in the state-of-the-art Qatar National Convention Centre, in Doha, for four days to discuss and debate world issues. The central theme of the conference was Shifting Power Dynamics in a Globalized World. Heated and multi-party debating sessions took place in the various UN committees.

The conference brought together a diverse body of students from around the world and the knowledge, intelligence, creativity, imagination and problem-solving skills demonstrated by the young participants was inspirational.

The MUN provided an international platform for our students to, not only to sharpen their leadership and diplomacy skills, but also to engage in public speaking and have the opportunity to view problems from multiple perspectives. The students also had the privilege of visiting Georgetown-Qatar University and to attend demonstration classes.

The Cultural night and Diplomatic Reception were other attractions of the conference. The Diplomatic reception provided our students with the opportunity to interact with the Ambassadors from leading nations from around the world. The Cultural Night was an exciting experience where students performed various art forms to represent their culture. The AKMSS performance was acknowledged as the best performance of the 2014 GTMUN Cultural Night.

Four day GTMUN-2014 was unforgettable experience for all the participants.
