In this era of globalization, learning about the world is more important than ever. No matter what field or profession students enter once they finish their high school education, they will interact with people from different countries and diverse backgrounds and the problems that take place halfway around the world will have an impact on their lives.
I have attended twelve Model United Nation Conferences since March 2009 and every single time our students never cease to amaze me. They have sacrificed weekends to join other students in discussing global issues, proposing solutions to problems which concern us all. It is a time when I personally feel proud to be a teacher. It is an honour to be among such worthy, passionate and motivated students, who want their voices to be heard and believe in a better tomorrow.
Look forward to seeing you in March for an unforgettable PS-MUN experience.
Director of Foreign Languages & Bilingual Department
As the Head of the Foreign Languages Department at Platon School, I have always stressed the necessity of being open-minded and accepting of other cultures and ideas. Thus, it is a great honor to be part of the PS-MUN which not only aims to educate students about international affairs, but also to embrace and foster the importance of communication skills.
The PS-MUN 2013 was rewarding on all sides. I was proud that the students involved asked important questions, challenged their own assumptions, and researched diverse concepts. Everyone involved did an excellent job and was a true ambassador of Ethos. Students actively negotiated and resolved conflicts. It was a celebration of knowledge and internationalism.
I look forward to next year’s PS MUN and invite everyone to join us!
