For returning JrMUN and new students with an interest in attending JrMUN conferences and the preparation sessions, an email will be sent home to parents for confirmation/permission.
JrMUN develops skills in researching, public speaking and global awareness. The conferences we attend are simulations of the United Nations. Students are assigned a country, a committee and topics. These sessions will prepare you for the conferences that we attend during the year.

Thursday(SR) YogaKanika Mathew3.30-4.15Drama Studio7-1110One of yoga's primary benefits for adults is the alleviation of stress. Students may be young, but they aren't immune to stress. Family pressure, financial fears, academic performance standards and peer groups can all take a toll on a student's psyche and success in school. Yoga offers time for the body and mind to relax from the rigours of learning. This may help students be better at applying themselves when studying or learning in a classroom. Students often struggle with poor body image and awkwardness of movement. Through the practice of yoga, students will develop better kinaesthetic awareness (the sense of how your body moves through space) and more respect for their own bodies. Yoga may also help students get along better with one another, which fosters a more positive learning environment. Students are welcome but not required to bring their own mats. 2008 Nov (No Boundaries)29 Nov
