The District 9820 Model United Nations Assembly was held on the weekend of 17th - 19th May at Phillip Island Adventure Resort.
54 Year-10 and 11 students formed 27 delegations representing allocated countries and debated six resolutions.  The delegations debated the situations of North Korea, Syria, Yemen, Iran, climate change and refugees.
A formal dinner was held on Saturday night, where the students were joined by a number of Rotarians and teachers.
It was encouraging to see a number of Rotarians, parents and teachers visit the assembly over the weekend to watch the delegates in action. A couple of the debates were also streamlined live on the MUNA Facebook page.
Following our District 9820 Assembly, Rotarian Di Harrison from Hazelwood RC and myself accompanied a delegation of 3 students to Canberra. 
The delegation, made up of Joanna Angeletos from Frankston High, Callum Mann & Trinity Joseph from Mount Eliza Secondary College, represented our district at the National Model United Assembly held at the Museum of Australian Democracy (Old Parliament House).
During our visit in Canberra, we also visited Parliament House and the War Memorial. We were joined by three Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Mount Eliza.
MUNA 2020 will be held on the weekend of 22nd - 24th May 2020 at Phillip Island Adventure Resort and Rotary Clubs are encouraged to participate by sponsoring delegations from their local Secondary College.
Rotarians interested in this youth program, who would like more information or would like to be part of the organising committee, are welcome to contact me to discuss it.
