Karachi

Karachi
Over 400 students from local schools attended the first day of the Model United Nations at the Dawood Public School (DPS) on Friday.
The three-day Dalmun organised by students of the school’s A-Levels section would conclude on Sunday evening. The DPS management professed their delight at the significant increase in participants since the Dalmun was started two years ago, with this year’s registration figures being four times higher than the initial summit.
Speaking to The News, DPS A-Levels Principal Huma Thaver reiterated the importance of such programmes in developing students’ critical thinking capacity. “They are not just familiarised with research and information sharing techniques; these youngsters are, essentially, learning how listening to and properly questioning matters, and actually understanding a problem before working on solutions,” she said.
Explaining the basic format of the summit, which is an educational simulation competition that deals with diplomacy and international relations, she said the Dalmun was stringently based on the United Nations’ format and offers invaluable exposure for students.
