We at UNA NZ are delighted to invite you to the 2019 Hamilton High School Students Model United Nations Assembly. We are primarily concerned with providing each delegate an enjoyable and educational experience. We believe firmly that this conference is an opportunity for students to learn about international relations, public speaking, and the challenges of high-stakes diplomacy through practical experience. Also, this will be a chance to meet people from other schools in Hamilton to create long-lasting networks and friends.
