Latest Sports News

Junior Model United Nations General Assembly

Last Saturday, Otumoetai College had two teams in the Junior Model United Nations General Assembly event held at Tauranga Girls College. 13 teams from the Bay of Plenty and Western Bay of Plenty were represented.

The issue being debated was The Question of Climate Change. Our teams were Tom Voller and Paige Gerrish as Finland and Zoe Russell, Angus Heays and Catherine Rutherford as Switzerland (all Year 10). 

Despite the students having never competed in MUNA before, they worked well together as a team and had a very high standard of public speaking.

After a long day, Finland came 1st Equal, which was an excellent result considering their level of experience compared with the other teams.

 Our winning team Tom Voller & Paige Gerrish with Angie Warren-Clark.
