The Model United Nations Club emerged award winners at Ananda College Model United Nations Conference 2022, establishing an unprecedented record of winning awards at every conference of the year. A contingent of 15 delegates took part in the ACMUN weekend on the 5th and 6th of November. The conference took place within Ananda College Colombo premises and was the 6th edition of its kind.
The award winners were as follows,
Rudhesh Ram – First Higher Commendation, General Assembly 1
Kavindu Athukorala – Second Higher Commendation, General Assembly 1
Lakindu Perera – Honorary Mention, Economic and Social Council
It must be especially noted that all three awards came from first time winners, exemplifying the growth nurtured at the club. However, the triumph only came following hours of tireless training with the support of seniors and old boys. Well versed in the specifics of MUN procedure and international relations, the delegates were able to take their research binders to the committee rooms with confidence and poise.
A special thank you goes to Mr. V Raveendran for his continued role as the backbone of a culture of diplomacy at college. This is also extended to the old boys Sadesh Rajapakse, Tharin Rajapaksha and Dineth Keragala whose unfettered support emboldened our progress. We believe that TCMUN will continue to prosper in the years ahead built on its principles of specialization.
