The last day of the VHSMUN 2010 was quite eventful. Committee meetings started at 10am, when the committees resumed their sessions from yesterday’s. This portion of the committee sessions involved a ‘crises’, which is a hypothetical problem situation that the delegates have to solve with cooperation, diplomacy, quick thinking, researching and debating skills.
After the morning session was over, all delegates, teachers, organising staff had lunch at 1pm. It was a time when all could take a break, discuss informally, or just chat. For us Press Corps staff, it was a chance to have full length interviews with delegates and the members of the Board.
From 2pm to 5pm committee sessions resumed. Now, the final solutions to the crises and agenda had to be made. For this, the delegates of all committees had to make blocs and write draft resolutions which summed up their approaches and solutions to the issues being discussed. Then the committees voted on which draft resolutions to pass. This brought the committee sessions of the MUN to an end.
But the VHSMUN wasn’t over yet. The Closing Ceremony of the VHSMUN 2010 was held at 5pm in the main school auditorium. All the delegates, accompanying teachers, staff were present. Awards were given out to students of each committee on the basis of Best Delegate, Commendation, Second Commendation and Best Position Paper. The Award for Best Delegation went to the delegation of Modern School, Barakhamba Road. Bharat Seth, the Chair of the ECOSOC, also said in his speech that this was the best MUN he had been to. The vice-principal, Ms Renu Puri, also praised the coordinating teachers who were the brains and soul behind the MUN: Vandana Choubey ma’am, Gurpreet Nain ma’am, Yadav Sir, and Ritika ma’am. She also praised the hard work of the Vivekites behind the MUN, saying that all members of the MUN club who organised the MUN imbibed the true spirit of Vivek. There was a closing video presentation directed by Apurv Gupta, Saba Sodhi and Kirti Kler in which everything that happened during the course of the MUN was played. It garnered lots of cheer and applause from the audience.
Saanya Ojha, Secretary General of the MUN, gave a closing speech and thanked everyone. She said she could not believe that the VHSMUN was coming to a close and expressed how fun it had all been. All the USGs of all the organising committees were called upon stage, namely USG Registration: Kamya Choudhary, USG Delegate Affairs: Shiven Bali, USG Press Corps: Raunak Khosla, USG Finance: Aseem Bhatti, USG Cultural Affairs: Riya Saxena, USG Informal Affairs: Kritika Dadoo and Ranbir Grewal, and USG Food and Beverages: Mehma J.
