Day 2 saw the delegates choosing sides, forming blocs and sticking by their allies on the various issues at hand. The agenda was now properly thrown into light as the delegates were interviewed for their positions. On the final day of the MUN, revealing press conferences were conducted, with the delegates defending their stances. Resolutions were drafted and a formal vote was conducted.

The CHIREC Model United Nations an educational simulation and academic competition in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations.

Students are placed in committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body. They are presented with their assignments in advance, along with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in the committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent.

At the end of a conference, the best-performing delegates in each committee, as well as delegations, are sometimes recognized with awards. The CHIREC MUN allows our students to have a profound knowledge and appreciation of global concerns and makes them cognizant international citizens who understand global affairs and politics on a regional, national, and international platform.

Over the last three years our Model UN has attracted over 400 students, becoming one of the most successful MUNs in the country and world.

The CHIREC MUN provided students with the opportunity to research, debate, and hone their public speaking and leadership abilities while exercising their critical thinking and interactive skills. The Chief Guest Ms. April Wells, Public Affairs Officer of the U.S. Consulate, inaugurated the occasion and addressed the 350 delegates, exhorting them to demonstrate the true spirit of the United Nations. Avidant Bhagat, the Secretary General of the student delegation, Dhruvika Sahni, the Director General, reminded the delegates of their duties and responsibilities.

In six different venues around campus, students were immersed in intense debates, discussions, and negotiations as they forged alliances and pushed the agendas of their countries. Awards for Best Position Papers were given out at the Closing Ceremony, and in his closing address, Secretary General Avidant Bhagat reminded the gathering that their responsibilities towards World Peace remain unchanged, and requested the delegates to take this mission forward.

CHIRECs student diplomats stepped into the shoes of ambassadors from UN member states ranging from Argentina and Saudi Arabia to India and Russia, to debate and discuss issues, and collaborate to resolve conflicts. The vast agenda, which included a discussion about Egypts socio-political climate, contained a latitude of issues certain to challenge the young delegates. They tirelessly prepared drafts of resolutions, negotiated with supporters and adversaries, and handled the motions and arguments conscientiously, all in the interest of mobilizing international cooperation.

After 6 months of preparation, the CHIREC MUN 2012 was held from the 12th to 15th July, 2012. To commence CHIRECs first Model United Nations, a grand opening ceremony was held at the banquet hall of Taj Banjara, Hyderabad. 197 delegates attended the event, which began with a warm welcome from Mrs. Iffat Ibrahim, the Principal of CHIREC CBSE. Mr. Richard Hyde, the Deputy High Commissioner of UK to India, addressed the delegates, discussed with them the importance of dealing with difficult and depressing issues, and focused on the problems around the globe that have been aggravated by the Rwandan Civil Wars. He also reviewed the agendas of each committee in detail, emphasizing what it takes to be the "perfect diplomat" .

The first of its kind, the CHIREC MUN simulated some of the most well-known organs and committees of the United Nations (UN): The General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and the Human Rights Council. Each of these committees was moderated by Directors and Assistant Directors. Avidant Bhagat of Class IX D, Director of the General Assembly, said that he was “extremely proud of what the committee has achieved. Resolving the issue of A nuclear-free zone in the Middle East’ was something that one may have considered ‘impossible’.”
