VCE Indonesian students proved their language skills yesterday as they debated the UN Resolution on Women and Gender Equality at the Treasury Theatre, Melbourne. 22 countries were represented at the second Model UN conference, with Wodonga Senior Secondary College sending two teams.
Member of the delegation representing China, Willem Manley said, “It was great to debate global issues with like minded students in Indonesian.”
“Despite our differences we were able to debate ammendments, just like they do at the United Nations,” said Charlotte Kay, Nicaraguan Delegation.
