Rev. Fr. Manager's Message

Confined, but not broken. These words perfectly describe our world in the present times where after two years of life in lockdown, the world is rising from its slumber, breaking the chains that incarcerated it and unlocking itself. With slow and careful measures, endeavours are being made to return to pre-COVID times, where our physical bonds were as strong as social ones. While we are all counting down the days to return to a world after COVID-19, we need to be aware that parts of our society will remain permanently changed. This is not to say we are facing a full reset. Rather, life after the virus will be altered by dozens of new tweaks and adjustments. Many of these changes will immediately become the new normal, with people adapting quickly to the different ways COVID-19 has impacted their lives.

But with change, there will arise new challenges. Not only do we have to curb and defeat the present virus, but we also need to come together to prevent future catastrophes. The pandemic has shown us the ugly sides of the world in a new perspective. It has given us a new stand on human rights, on health crisis, on world hunger, and most importantly, on mental health. It is our duty as global citizens to join hands and pro-actively address each and every problem the pandemic has shown us and to inhibit them from taking place again. The world needs to be rebuilt with new frameworks, with cross-border dimensions, needing greater and more effective international coordination and cooperation.

You are thus invited at SXMUN'21 to be part of the insightful discussions on a host of issues that we are dogged by today, and with the hope of finding ourselves in their midst.

Best Wishes

Rev. Fr. Principal's Message

Dear Delegates,

A staunch credence that the ingenious young minds can solely foster the seed of a desired global change streaks across the scholastic firmament of SXMUN.

SXMUN’21 with its theme ‘The Awakening Times’ is a utopian platform for young delegates to converge on a common colloquium to amicably synergize their endeavors and convictions, directing them resolutely to scout viable solutions for all the cosmopolitan and environmental hitches that have tormented our planet, enfeebling and debilitating its rapport, serenity and much sought sense of fraternity.

Today, the world yearns for a juvenile battalion of agile, equipped, peacenik policy makers and enlightened trailblazers who can engage themselves profusely in hauling off mankind out of the imbroglio of raging conflicts, eternal disputes and digressions in order to reconstruct the world on the cornerstones of peaceful dialogue, deference for contrasting opinions and mutual apprehension. SXMUN with insightful ratiocinates, analysis and scrutinisation will inevitably stimulate intellectual and social milieu for such a young brigade who would be joining hands to steer the globe in the direction of the utopic vision and ideals of the most venerated and fondly remembered world leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Junior, Abraham Lincoln and Nelson Mandela who fought the evils ravaging the world with mighty weapons of non-violent means through peaceful discussions, negotiations and debates.

I reckon that the active participation and engagement of delegates in the conclave shall lend a Midas touch to erudition, scrupulous endeavors and leave an exhilarating influence on posterity.

With best wishes and a rewarding experience.

Coordinator's Message

Dear Delegates,

It has been rightly quoted by Alfred Lord Tennyson, “Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will, to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.” As the pandemic surrounds the world with its fatal and detrimental consequences, leaving several countries with thousands of people grieving with deteriorating economic, social and environmental standings, people all over the world strive to not let this get the best of them.

It is important to keep in mind that the past year and a half has been nothing short of a bewildering thundecol-lg-ap. It resulted in millions of people dying, food and water shortages, and the collapsing of health infrastructures. Several natural & man-made calamities befell the world, leaving various countries in shambles, resulting in the homelessness of millions of people.

Regardless of such cataclysmal events taking place, no country and its people have given up. Every country carries on its quest for answers, withstanding all debacles thrown at them. The world is divided into different territories, yet in times of such impediments, the governments and people of all countries and cultures are coming together to cooperate and find immunity against the virus.

SXMUN’21 brings forth this opportunity for all budding individuals, so that this platform becomes the voice of today’s youth. We aim at inspiring and encouraging all students as we understand the need to help them grow into independent minds.

With Warm Regards

Secretary General's Message

Dear Delegates,

After four successful versions of SXMUN, we now venture towards the second online edition of SXMUN’21. From an insightful and perspicacious concept, it has burgeoned to a memorable and enthralling conference. I am eminently proud of this praxis where students take a step back from the utopian bubble they are brought up in and deliberate over some of the most pressing hitches and problems that are afflicting the world currently.

Today, quite as never before, there's a dire need to fortify our future generations against the cynic and estranging forces that threaten to overpower humanity for their prodigious appetite for power. These past few years have seen the planet becoming more and more dichotomized and the untold anguish caused by the deleterious and antagonistic forces of fundamentalism are wreaking havoc on humanity. Our leaders are blinded by ignorance and avarice and so our only hope for a refulgent future lies in the hands of the bairn and juvenile. Hence, legitimately fostering these young minds into contemplative and benevolent global citizens is pertinent and salient since they can play a conspicuous role in contriving and initiating the modifications that our society so desperately requires.

Shrouded by dark clouds of extremism, unrest and hunger, we as a race are stoushing for mere survival, scraping the bottom for the slightest glimmer of hope but if we fight as one, with all our strength, with all our moral authority, the tenebrous clouds of precariousness will part and the bright light of optimism will light our path towards an ameliorated future. It is thus my honor and pleasure to invite you all to SXMUN, a conference of the likes you might have never witnessed before. On the days of the colloquium the students transcend to the status of world leaders, participating in scintillating deliberation, all the while making memories for a lifetime. St. Xavier’s School, Bathinda has always been enthusiastic in incentivizing young minds to indulge in more than just their curriculums and try to proliferate and dilate their horizons. Thereby, I fervently anticipate these days of enthralling debate and more significantly, of inspiring change.

With Warm Regards,
Ramnique Sandhu

A MESSAGE FROM THE SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE UNITED NATIONS

St. Xavier’s School Bathinda

Our world faces an unprecedented crisis that is causing widespread human suffering, upending lives, devastating the global economy and risking reversals of hard-won progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.


In these trying times, I welcome the holding of your Model UN activity. Your unwavering commitment to international cooperation is essential for tackling the COVID-19 pandemic – the biggest test our world has faced since the Second World War.


We can only defeat the coronavirus if we do so globally. We must recognize that the poorest countries and most vulnerable will be the hardest hit, and that decades of development gains could be reversed. Countries already suffering armed conflict now face further upheaval. And the pandemic is having a disproportionate impact on the world’s women.


The United Nations is undertaking a wide-ranging response – calling for a global ceasefire and working to control the pandemic, save lives, mitigate the socio-economic impacts, fight stigma and recover better.


We are strongly committed to providing full support to all, guided by our shared values. The world needs your energy, and I draw great hope from seeing your generation mobilize to address the challenges of our time and to build a healthier, more equitable and sustainable future for all.


In that spirit of common cause, I wish you a successful Model UN.
