1st GRADERS – HEALTHY NUTRITION
To make our students understand the importance of a balanced and healthy diet we engage them in projects and help them understand though films.

3rd GRADERS – CONSUMER AWARENESS
We all live in the world of unconscious consumption. We shop at markets and encounter many problems while shopping. At the end of our training, students learn what they need to pay attention to in order to become aware consumers.The following questions need to be answered: Is the quality of the purchased item good? Does it have TSE mark? Is the expiration and manufacture date written?
4th GRADERS – HUMAN RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Humans are social beings who living within a society both have their rights and responsibilities. We encounter many rights violation nowadays. People are entitled to their rights to live, have education, marriage, travel etc. regardless of their gender, race, colour, religion or language.
Our school is also a part of the society. We all work at a school where our main responsibility is to respond to the students right to education.
What is right and responsibility? How do we differentiate between rights and responsibilities? What rights and responsilities do we have? What are the problems that we face when we do not use them correctly? What are our duties to use our rights and responsibilities properly? – these are the questions we try to answer. To create a happy and successful society, everyone should respect each other and continue to exercise his rights and fulfilling his responsibilities at the same time.
By engaging our students in various activities related to the topic mentioned above, we have guided our students to be sensitive individuals and we will continue to do so in the future.
