Seytek Grammar School, built by Sebat Educational Institution in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, started with a gorgeous opening ceremony. The opening ribbon of the impressive school building was cut by Kamila Talieva, Vice President of Kyrgyzstan.

The folk dance performance of the students drew long applause from the audience.

Talieva stated in her keynote speech that: “New generation has moral problems in these days. The students in Turkish schools are very well mannered. We have not seen or heard any unpleasant behavior of a Turkish school graduate.” She thanked Orhan Inandi, executive director of the Internationa Sebat Educational Institutions, for their contributions to education in her country and she honored Inandi by dressing him up with traditional Kyrgyz robe.

Inandi put emphasis on the importance of educating the youth. He stressed that the students learn 2-3 languages in the schools funded by Turkish entrepreneurs in Kyrgyzstan. He reminded the Turkish proverb: “One language – person, two languages two persons,” which means one who speaks only one language is one person, but one who speaks two languages is two people.

International Sebat Educational Institutions run 17 schools, many dorms and language learning centers in Kyrgyzstan.
