The 5th edition of the VHS MUN opened on a note of cheer, happiness, friendship and advice with the hallways filled with delegates; some first timers, some old hands, all in a mélange of traditional colours, all in their very best on the first day of the much awaited event. An event that is looked forward to by us, at Vivek High, two years in advance. An event that is planned a whole year ahead, executed for more than six months with diligence and minute by minute planning by 110 students of Vivek High School.
The opening ceremony was held in the school auditorium with the conference inaugurated by Ms. Gurpreet Kaur Deo, the Additional Director General of Police, Information and Technology for Punjab and Chandigarh. Our Principal, Mrs. Renu Puri, and Ms. Deo lit the ceremonial lamp to start the event on an auspicious note. As is tradition, the start of each event is with an invocation to Lord Ganesha; and the students performed a ‘vandana’ asking for His blessings.
The Chief Guest, Ms. Deo enlightened the audience on the important role played by the United Nations in strife worn regions around the world, and the efficacy of its presence in conflict resolution. To the delegates, her words were simple yet sure – that personal integrity is the only staircase to success.
The Opening Video set the theme and pace for the VHS MUN 2018 conference, with images of war in today’s world; casualties of bombs, dislocation, hunger, depravation and shock. The unsettling tenor of the film reiterated the aptness of the theme ‘Where There Is Unity, There Is Victory.”
The delegates were later treated to a melodious performance by the school band. Dancing to the tunes of Michael Jackson and old Bollywood music, Vivek High’s lead hip-hop dancers enthralled the delegates with an amazing edge-of-your-seat face-off performance, which filled the auditorium with energy. Declaring VHS MUN open with his speech, the Secretary General, Mr. Rahul Sharma sounded the gavel, thus commencing a promising four day event that promises to provide delegates with an opportunity to develop key skills such as debating, persuasive speaking, networking and negotiation.
With the theme ‘Ubi Concordia, Ibi Victoria – Where There Is Unity, There is Victory’, Vivek High School, Chandigarh will be hosting the fifth edition of VHSMUN 2018 to be held in the school grounds from 12 July, 2015 to 15 July, 2015.
