    Although HSTA stands for the History and Strategic Affairs Society, our members do not comb through the annals of history, or sit around scheming to land another checkmate. We are the resident MUN (Model United Nations) club in RI, and one of the oldest in Singapore.

    MUNning may sound daunting, especially to those without experience, but rest assured! Our CCA sessions will sufficiently equip you with the necessary skills to take on the challenges of debate and diplomacy, as members will be trained in lobbying, resolution writing and be challenged to engage critically with hot-button issues. Along the way, you will also learn to view current affairs with a discerning eye.

    In a CCA where discussion centres around how to make the world a better place, we are not all talk, and no action. HSTA members also volunteer for projects such as the Step Up, Speak Out! initiative, which aims to help primary school students with their oratorical skills and to take an interest in current affairs.

    Join us if you’re a curious individual interested in current affairs!
