Message from the Principal

Dear Parents,

Every year, about one third of our students leave to go back home or move on to another country. Whilst students are happy to start their summer holidays, they are also sad to say goodbye to their friends. Therefore, this last week of school is very important to our community. We have had a great week with many fun activities and events that have allowed our students to focus on each other and not academics. These events were wrapped up today with our awards ceremonies and class parties.

I hope you and your families have a great summer. Best of luck to those moving on. For those of you who are returning, we look forward to seeing you in September.

Thank you all for a great year!

Congratulations to our youngest graduates leaving the Early Years division and moving into Year 1. We wish you the best of luck wherever you will be. Special thanks to the teachers that supported their emotional, social and academic development with patience and dedication, Miss Becca Tignor and Miss Didem Buğdaycı.

At our Awards assembly we celebrated our students' achievements and also said good-bye to some of them who are leaving us to return to their countries or move on to another country; we wish all of them good luck with their future studies. Best wishes for a fun and relaxing holiday to you all; see you back in September refreshed and ready for a new academic year!

Message from the Parent Council

Dear parents,

Thank you again for your support throughout the year! Thank you for trusting me to represent all parents in communicating with school.

The year passed to quickly with so many intense events where the children could create memories for their life. To those who won't be in our MEFIS community next year, I would like to wish good luck and happiness for their new paths, come to say hi if you are in Izmir again or send some pictures from all over the world! You will be in our thoughts!
For everybody, wishing now a relaxing summer break! Take care! And don't forget, in a silent moment, to think about you being the PC President next school year:)
