The opening ceremony commenced with the presence of approximately 180 delegates. Following glimpses of previous MUN and lamp lighting ceremonies, the event progressed with the speeches of the Chief Guest, Principal, and Vice-Principal. The Secretary-General introduced the Secretariat followed by the declaration of conference open.

The Committee comprising United Nations General Assembly, United Nations Security Council, World Health Organisation, Lok Sabha, and IP were simulated.

The Committees discussed their respective issues. Deep and sometimes fierce responses and speeches were also witnessed. The first day closed with endless debates.

The second day commenced with daylight. Each Committee went into a deep debate. As the afternoon approached, the delegates started to prepare the documents of summary of each Committee. It seemed as if we were witnessing an actual alliance in the United Nations.

In the closing ceremony, the esteemed Principal and Vice-Principal thanked all delegates for being a part of this conference and awarded Ryan International School, Mayur Vihar, as the 'Best School Delegation'.

All executive board members gave feedback and announced the winners amongst the intellectual little diplomats. It was a tough fight among them. The Chief Advisor thanked all of the Committees and the panel of judges for their support and hard work. Even without the Chief Advisor, Puja Seth, this task was impossible.

The Secretary-General formally closed the Conference until next year. We look forward to a physical CRUXMUN next year and resolve to make it an even bigger and better event.
