Dear David Lee,
We would like to thank the president of EPS and you personally for your support and mostly for your letter addressed to the Greek Minister of Education, as well as to the IPhO.
We really appreciate the way you expressed the matter of representation with respect to our views and your full recognition of the Hellenic Physical Society.
So far we haven’t got any reaction from the Ministry of Education. However, as you know, we have all received a response from the IPhO where they expressed their disapproval of a possible interference of the Ministry to the issue of the Greek representation in the Olympiad.
We hope that this will not affect the Minister’s decision. We are still waiting for an official response by the Minister of Education regarding the procedure to be followed for the formulation of the Greek team.
As regards the Greek Physics contest, we are glad to inform you that we managed to organise a successful contest with the participation of approximately 20,000 students in all educational levels.
We would like to thank you once again for your co-operation. We will keep you informed on any news.
Board of Directors of Hellenic Physical Society
