My Model United Nations experience - Nicolas

| 0 comments| by Student Voice Student Voice

This week Brillantmont students are at MUN in the Hague. Model United Nations is an integral part of our programmes and we are delighted to participate in two overseas conferences each year, in addition to the MUN events we join locally.

Nicolas, an 11th Grade student, shares his MUN Singapore experience.

 

"As a Brillantmont student I had the chance to take part to the THIMUN conference in Singapore. During the time of the preparation, we learned multiple skills which would be helpful during the conference such as public speaking, individual research and protocolary language relevant to the UN context.

The more the conference was approaching, the more everyone could feel the tension going up. Once arrived in Singapore, my stress reached a whole new level (the seven-hours jet lag might not have helped).

I realized that I was going to spend four days in an auditorium, full of people I didn’t know and who were probably way more prepared than me, trying to debate with them and somehow sell myself and my ideas.

Art creates opportunities for the students at Brillantmont

| 0 comments| by Angela Mc Fall

At Brillantmont, we pride ourselves on delivering a wide range of subjects which help our students find their true passion, and develop their talents. It doesn’t matter whether they aim for a future career in the arts, or they just love expressing themselves in a visual way.

We welcome students who want to be inspired, and who want to be creative.

The art department at Brillantmont delivers a curriculum that encourages students to forge their own path. Whether painting, drawing, sculpting or collage-making catch their attention, we nurture and encourage that love of art.
