The annual MUNK (Model United Nations of Kumon) was held on February 11th. MUNK is a model United Nations conference that is held in Kumon, and this year marks the 16th conference. Normally held as a face-to-face meeting, this year was held online due to the the corona pandemic.
Although the number of participants was slightly smaller than usual due to the inability to invite students from other schools, 124 students from the first year of junior high school to the second year of high school gathered to engage in a heated discussion on this year's theme, "World Hunger."
Zoom was used as the platform for the meeting. Students, such as the chairman, were in charge of running the school halls and classrooms. Although there was some technical difficulties during part of the lobbying in the morning, the afternoon session went smoothly, and three DRs (resolutions) were adopted.
Despite the unusual format this year, the conference turned out to be quite successful.
