Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik urged the students of SAI International School to instil courage and dedication in themselves. He was speaking during the inaugural ceremony of the International Model United Nations Conference - 2013 (SAIMUN).

Naveen said the youth are instrumental in reshaping the course of events and that history is replete with such examples. He also applauded the initiative taken by the school in providing the students with a good environment to explore their potential.

The theme for SAIMUN is ‘One World, One Family’. The students of the school will participate in SAIMUN as diplomats of various countries and NGOs to debate on different issues. MUNs are usually the stimulation of how the actual United Nations Assembly functions.

Students from Glasgow, Dubai, Dhaka and Wyoming participated in the event. A total of 300 ‘delegates’ from various schools took part in the event.

The school’s chairman, Bijay Sahoo, said the purpose of organising SAIMUN was to enable the students to understand the problems faced by the global community. Principal Harish Sanduja and trustee Shilpi Sahoo were also present at the event.
