CLASS 7-45 VISITS THE UNITED NATIONS
On May 5th
Incarnation School put Class 7-45 on a bus
and sent it into international territory.
Class 7-54 met with Mr. Daniele D. Bodini,
the Ambassador of the Republic of San
Marino, for a personal tour of the United
Nations. Mr. Bodini is also a Board member
of The Partnership for Inner-City Education.
At the United Nations the students got an
exclusive look at both the Security Council
and the General Assembly. Other visitors,
confined to the press seats in the back,
looked on as Class 7-45 explored the floors
of the two rooms. Students located the
desks of the ambassadors from the Dominican
Republic, Ecuador, Colombia, and other
countries where they have family, as well as
the desks of Japan and Pakistan, two
countries recently in the news.
“The best part was when we got to go up
behind the podium where the Secretary
General and visiting presidents sit and give
speeches,” said Kent, a seventh grader. It
was a once in a lifetime photo opportunity!
7-45 also got to view the permanent and
rotating exhibits at the United Nations. In
one exhibit students learned about the fight
against malaria. In another they learned
about the United Nation’s
encouragement of nuclear disarmament and the
push to ban land mines.
Students walked away from the trip with a
heightened awareness of the work done by the
United Nations and the impact it has on
people all over the world.
Incarnation School and Class 7-45 extend a
very special thank you to Ambassador Bodini
for taking time out of his day to show them
around international territory!
