Student Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (SCHOGM)

31 August 2015

The Student Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (SCHOGM) came to a close earlier this week after an exhilarating two days of debate and discussion of issues facing the 53 member states of the Commonwealth.  This was such a fascinating experience to be part of and has helped me gain a better understanding of international relations and the process by which negotiations take place between heads of government where a secretary-general facilitates the creation of peaceful resolutions.

I hope very much that Horowhenua College will continue to be involved in many future SCHOGM meetings to come! ┬áSimply put, it was so much fun and also very entertaining to get a short glimpse into the Parliamentary debating chember with some very fast paced banter between NZ’s politicians.
