BHS students achieved outstanding results at the Model Arab League Conference at LAU on 23-24 February 2019. “The Model Arab League is an innovative educational program that engages Lebanese High School and Middle School students in an exploration of current Arab world issues, through interactive simulations and curricular materials. It helps engage students from various religious and political backgrounds in Lebanon, to discuss various social, political and economic subjects that are affecting and shaping our Arab World. Representing one of the Arab League’s 22 member-states, student delegates work to achieve consensus on questions, with which diplomats face every day. Student leaders are given the opportunity to debate and form coalitions in order to draft and pass resolutions that seek to resolve some of the Arab countries’ most difficult challenges.” ~GCLAUMUN
