Date posted: March 4, 2013

As a part of the publicity efforts for “Eskisehir 2013 Capital of Turkic Culture” project in Crimea, a delegation from Eskisehir province of Turkey visited Simferopol International School in Crimea. Eskisehir Governor Kadir Kocdemir, Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Eskisehir Deputy Ulker Can, Republican People’s Party Eskisehir Deputy Kazim Kurt, Turkish Consul General to Odesa Huseyin Ergani, Cifteler (a district in Eskisehir) Mayor Metin Ozen and Eskisehir Osmangazi University’s former Rector Prof. Fazil Tekin constituted the group.

AK Party Deputy Ulker Can highlighted the contribution of Turkish Schools to development of host countries and to raising a brilliant future besides fostering the global peace: “Whatever country we have visited so far has a Turkish School. It makes us feel proud to see the government officials and local people showing their appreciation of the schools,” stated Can.


International Simferopol Schools General Manager Said Enver Yildiz informed the group about the school operating in Crimea since 2003: “Our schools got the first place in the nationwide Top 100 Schools contest. This achievement has qualified our school to be listed at the record book of best 380 schools of Ukraine and Crimea. Moreover, Crimea Supreme Assembly granted an order of merit to our school. It was the first time in Ukraine and Crimea’s history that a foreign institution was granted that merit,” said Yildiz.
