Dear MUN Advisors, Student Officers and Participants,

The rise in cases of the COVID-19 virus and its concerning strain in Greece, has created exceptional, unforeseen and unprecedented conditions that may pose a potential health risk for the participants of the PS-MUN Conference and their families. A number of schools registered from abroad have cancelled their participation due to the said situation. Also, some of the Greek Schools which were to participate have been closed following directions from the Greek Ministry of Health for precautionary reasons and are not allowed to participate, as well.

Taking the above mentioned under serious consideration and as to ensure the well-being of all participants involved, the successful outcome and the quality of the 10th PS-MUN Conference, the Platon School Administration has decided to cancel its 10th scheduled session which was to take place this coming weekend (Friday March 6th – Sunday March 8th 2020). It is our utmost priority and obligation to take all precautionary measures necessary at this most precarious period.

Without having any knowledge concerning the development of the said virus in Greece and around the world in the near future, it is with great regret to announce that we are not able to re-schedule the conference for the current Academic school year. Any options for postponement within the month of May are virtually impossible due to the fact that it is a period fully occupied with school and student examinations according to the Greek National School Curriculum.

Further information concerning the refund of fees to all schools and participants will follow within the next two days. All fees will be refunded in full.

On behalf of the PS-MUN Organising Team, we wish to sincerely thank you for your kind attention and understanding of this unforeseen situation.

Sincerely yours,

PS-MUN Organising Team
