AsiaPAC Roleplay Exam

Kelvin Asia Pacific scholars in grades 9 through 12 took part in the 23rd annual Asia Pacific Role-Play examination recently.  The examination takes place in the form of a  United-Nations style conference, with weeks of research culminating in a day-long series of press conferences and debates on resolutions inspired by current events.  This year's Asia Pacific Conference benefitted from a keynote address by Dr. TIna Mai Chen, who shared with Kelvin scholars her research on migrant workers and social services in China.  Intermediate level students were each assigned a country in the Asia Pacific region and debated five resolutions on the portrayal of women in Asian media, air pollution, relations with the new American administration, aiding Syrian refugees, and improving rights for migrant workers.  Greenpeace, Médecins sans frontières, the Mennonite Central Committee and the World Health Organization -- as portrayed by senior Asia Pac scholars -- were all on hand to lobby and critique proceedings.  Kelvin is the only high school in Manitoba offering courses in Asia Pacific Studies.  Contact Sokalski Sensei at rsokalski@wsd1.org for more information
