Two Noble Park students took home awards from a model United Nations conference.
Rotary Club of Noble Park sponsored Murtaza Karimi and Sajedeh Safaei to take part in the event at Parliament House in Melbourne on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May.
They represented Italy and won the District Governor’s prize.
“The two students were both Afghan refugees who have been in Australia for just over two years and handled the high pressure event with aplomb arguing their case with well-prepared speeches,” teacher Brenda Lawson said.
Students from more than 40 schools from the metropolitan area represented 41 countries, dressed in national costume, and had to prepare speeches on eight resolutions.
They presented their country’s policies on human rights and health, peace and security, and social, economic and environmental issues.
