From the School Principal
Dear Işık Students,
The education torch lit in Thessaloniki in 1885 has illuminated our way until today, without compromising the principles and revolutions of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
We have started this academic year with great enthusiasm with the support of our Foundation, which has always put education first for the past 137 years. In this academic year, which we set out with the aim of raising “good people first” who are researching, questioning, sensitive to what is happening around them, have global awareness and will contribute to intercultural interaction, we will again participate in national and international competitions and projects, which will not be limited to academic studies. Our guide in the educational journey will be the light of Atatürk, as always; and we will continue to adapt to the era and the changes and innovations it brings.
Also, realizing that in order to take good care of the future, it is necessary to take care of our planet, we will consider the duty of raising the awareness of our children for a sustainable world in line with the Global Goals as the most important part of our educational mission.
You entrusted your most precious ones, your children, to us. You will see your children change and grow in their journey at Işık. You will notice how they have matured in the hands of our competent teaching staff who will raise them with the same care as you do. You will know that they love coming to school and that they are happy and at peace under the roof of Işık. We will train our students as self-confident citizens of the world, who can decide for themselves, and who take responsibility for their decisions. We are always open to your opinions and suggestions in this long-term journey, and we need your cooperation as well. We want you to know that by acting together, we will proceed much faster and easier.
I believe that we will achieve major success in this academic year with the cooperation of our staff, school and parents who have adopted innovation as a principle, and I offer my love and respect with the wish of a good academic year.
