The Floral Park Model UN team attended the Hofstra Model UN conference under the supervision of adviser Ms. Deborah Francis from March 3-5. 
Eleven students, including eighth-graders, freshmen and a sophomore, represented a number of countries including Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Greece, Syria, United States, and many others worked tirelessly on six committees. The students debated topics such sexual and gender based violence, a women’s right to education, access to universal healthcare, child malnutrition and other fundamental topics.
