Being a student has never felt better
Student Life Extracurricular Clubs Model United Nations Club
Model United Nations Club

The aim of the club is to develop debating skills as practised in the United Nations. This allows students to enhance their public speaking capabilities, build their confidence and enrich their knowledge of current affairs. Participation in MUN conferences allows students to apply these skills as well as acquire a greater understanding of other cultures. They develop a sensibility to pressing international issues which adds value to their profile when applying to university.

For more information, please see Mrs. Chrystoulla Mosfiliotis, Mrs. Sophia Millosia, Ms. Constantina Symeou, or Ms. Panayiota Mallas.
