Middle School Students Run Model UN Simulation at Fox Hill

Members of the CRS Model United Nations team recently visited the residents at Fox Hill, a senior residential community in Westwood, to facilitate a Model UN simulation.  Team members were assigned specific countries to represent and, after carefully explaining the simulation to everyone, split into delegations with Fox Hill residents joining in. Delegates were asked to discuss and recommend measures to address a possible zombie apocalypse based on an incident at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. 
It was great fun watching our Model UN team explain the procedural elements of Model UN simulations to their elderly counterparts and to witness the delight the residents took in partnering with our students.  Our Model UN team members demonstrated their usual impressive command of the UN deliberation process, poise during their statements, and confidence in their public speaking abilities.  CRS middle schoolers exhibited maturity and comfort in working with the elderly at different stages of the aging process.  They were respectful, compassionate, patient, and represented Charles River School in the most positive of ways.
