July 26, 2021 SFHS MUN 2021 Draws the Curtains Down

The SFHS MUN 2021 culminated today with the Closing Ceremony that witnessed actor and philanthropist, Mr. Sonu Sood along with Ms. Sweta Singh, executive editor and journalist at Aaj Tak, engaged in an interactive discussion that was moderated by Aanya Malik of our school.

Mr. Sood spoke about his humanitarian work during the pandemic and how he slowly built a community of volunteers, all of whom were connected by their desire to help the world become a better place.

“I don’t think twice about calling someone I don’t know, to help someone unknown ”, replied Mr Sood, when he was asked how he manages to provide medical resources, food and aid, even in the most difficult of situations.

He encouraged all those who were present, to actively take on roles to help others, in any way possible.

Ms. Sweta Singh talked about her experiences and learnings from being a veteran in the field of journalism for nearly two decades now.

“Never walk the path that has already been walked”, she said, while giving advice to the young audience members who wished to pursue a career in reporting and journalism.

These two stalwarts in their own professions exemplified the many roles and opportunities that we can as a community collaborate to make a difference.

The three day Model United Nations Conference with its over 270 delegates from across the country and an extremely capable Executive Board proved to be a meaningful platform for all. With an array of agendas and resolutions that were passed during the course of the event the participants engaged and debated freely on the virtual platform.

The Shriram School Moulsari won the award for Best School Delegation.

Overall, the event was a resounding success that promises to pave the way forward for our young, future change makers.

July 24, 2021 Harish Salve delivers keynote address at Strawberry Fields MUN Conference 2021

The much-awaited, eighth edition of the Strawberry Fields High School Model United Nations Conference 2021 opened last evening on a virtual platform with an inspiring address by celebrated lawyer Harish Salve.

He expressed his great appreciation of the visible involvement of the young generation in global events and issues. His advice to the young ambassadors was to be aware of and familiar with world events but to also remember to ‘have fun’. Global friendships and animosities are transient in nature, he opined, and threat perception too changes with time. The greatest institution Mr Salve remarked, is ‘the living of life’ and this in itself has the propensity to be remorseless. The human spirit, he stressed, should remain buoyant, empathetic, discerning, and self-aware but not self-serving. His parting words to the delegates were so relevant for today’s times – to use the vast resources that technology offers and seek solutions to abstract problems, not in isolation but in collaboration. The legal luminary called for seeking authenticity while looking out for the well-being of fellow citizens.

Spearheaded by the School’s grade 12 students, Aadya Batra and Aanya Malik, the conference promises to be a thought-provoking and action-packed event with intellectually stimulating and challenging discussions. It celebrates the coming together of unique minds and a variety of perspectives.

280 delegates from across India with 53 schools are participating, with the likes of Cathedral and John Connon School, the Sanskriti School, Shriram Schools, Pathways School, La Martiniere College, the Lawrence School, Sanawar, the Scindia School and Mayo College among others.

Renowned actor and philanthropist, Sonu Sood, and more recently headlined for his humanitarian work during the Covid-19 pandemic will be in discussions with the students in the exciting events planned at the virtual conference.

The MUN will be held over three days, from July 23rd to the 25th.
