In our school providing education service since 1973, there are 292 students (aged 14-18), 29 staff with 26 teachers, 2 vice principals and 1 principal.
Our school has been a boarding school since 2005 and 160 students benefit from our school’s dormitory.
For this project, we are fully concerned about the importance of healthy nutrition. It’s our primary mission to raise individuals academically and socially successful, physically and mentally healthy. We believe that physical well-being with healthy nutrition leads to academic and social success. We have been worrying about our students’ tendency to malnutrition and fast food in recent years. We believe that this project will create awareness on probiotics and healthy nutrition among our students, their parents and the school environment.
Most of our students come from a low to the middle socio-economic background and live in rural areas. We have a lot of students that haven’t travelled out of our city. This project will provide them with an opportunity to meet new people from European countries, and it will be a great
opportunity for cooperating and working with them.
To provide better education, our academic staff follows the articles published on eTwinning and School Education Gateway portal and participate in eTwinning projects.
We also carried out the following Comenius projects,
- Filmotherapy – Metamorphoses – COM/2013/REGIO/EN/W/0014
- People Who Changed And Shaped The World -2011-1-TR1-COM06-23969-1
Furthermore, we have been participating “Digital Citizenship” and “Protecting The Planet” projects via https://www.penpalschools.com/
As an institution, we support all kinds of innovation and the technological development required by our age that will contribute to the development and success of our students.
