The MUN is an educational simulation and/or academic competition in which pupils can learn about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations. Pupils become aware and present solutions for the issues facing the world today.
Since 2002, Tabeetha School has been participating by sending delegations of senior students. The activity takes place at MUN conferences locally and internationally during which the pupils become delegates, representatives of a UN member state previously allocated to them.
Each delegation presents a resolution to the committee to a previously given topic by adopting the political stances and cultural attitudes of the country they represent.
Every year in February, Tabeetha MUN delegation participates in the TIMEMUN (The Israel Middle East Modern United Nations) held at the Walworth Barbour American International School in Israel.
his educational programme offers pupils a glance of the International Criminal Court (ICC) work and principles, aiming to intensify awareness of Human Rights and their protection. High school and university students from around the globe are motivated to invest their time and ideas in simulations of historic cases held before the international tribunals, namely the Nuremberg Tribunal, the ICTY (The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia) and the ICTR (The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda).
By playing the role of prosecutors, members of the defence, judges or members of the observing media, pupils learn about the origin of the conflicts, fair trial and responsibility. This experience broadens pupils’ horizons and encourages them to become compassionate problem solvers and leaders of tomorrow in a complex world.
Tabeetha School is a founding member of the Peace League based at the Walworth Barbour American International School in Israel.

The teams are comprised of all nationalities, cultures and religions which ensure mutual cooperation and social interaction creating an atmosphere of respect and appreciation.
