They set off on 3rd March to attend the Global Conference at UNIS-UN, New York and returns on 18th March. An initiative, taken by Mrs. Nellie Ahmed Tanweer, the Managing Trustee, to send students to UNIS, UN so that they interact and become global students. It has become an annual feature in the diary of the Marians since its first team visited in the year 2007.

The students had worked on a film entitled “Awakening” which was screened ‘second’ at the conference. They had also written a poem entitled “The Change”, which had also been selected on this global platform. Phameninao Shaiza had recited the poem in front of the international delegates and participants at the United Nations general assembly hall. The students had also prepared on a debate keeping “Youth quake” in mind, as that is the theme for this year’s conference. They had won accolades and honours at the conference, winning at the Poem and Short Film Competitions.

Not only students, Mrs. Tanweer has never deterred from encouraging the faculty to excel.
