During school days, to participate in Model United Nations (MUN) is a great pride to students. What more can students ask when a Model United Nations is organised at their own school and students play a significant role in organising and participate as delegates at MUN.

Clarence High School, Bangalore, started MUN 5 years back. Started as an intra-school event, in 2018 they took the plunge to organise inter-school event in Bangalore. This year, CLMUN, an inter-school event is happening on 28-29 June.

CV Ranganathan, retired IFS officer and a former ambassador of India to China will be the chief guest of the opening ceremony. CV Ranganathan joined Indian Foreign Services in 1959. He has also served Government of India in Bonn, Hong Kong, Ethiopia, Moscow and Paris.

“Though Clarence Model United Nations is just launching its second edition, we are no strangers to
the competitive circuit of Model UN. I am proud of our students, past and present who have made
their mark these few years, by participating, leading and winning an array of accolades at a large
number of MUN, locally and nationally,” Dr Jerry George Mathew, Principal, Clarence High School.

Other prominent schools which host MUN are Vidya Niketan (Bangalore Model United Nations), Cottons Model United Nations, St. Joseph Boys High School, Bishop Cottons girls school, Sophia School, Jain Heritage School, JIRS and ROTA by SJCC college.
