ESK Students receive 2nd and 3rd place in Poetry Competition
Underwater Author Donates Books

We welcomed underwater photographer and author Alptekin Baloglu, who kindly donated his published books to the ESK library.

Mr. Baloglu’s books are inspired by his dives in the coasts of Thailand, Indonesia, Egypt, France, Ecuador, Spain, Turkey and many more.

For each book sold, Mr. Baloglu has began an initiative where he donates two books to schools in eastern turkey, to children who have never seen the sea. If you would like yo to learn more, you can follow this link:

Ozan Karaca Wins Bursary for Earning Highest UMS Points

Earlier this week the Ministry of Education announced the award of bursaries for Turkish Cypriots who graduated from A-Level programmes in 2018 based on the UMS points of the top 10 achievers. Congratulations to Class of 2018 ESK graduate Ozan Karaca who received 1694 UMS points, placing him first on the island! This is a wonderful accomplishment and comes as no surprise as Ozan had received four A*’s (Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics). Ozan is currently in the UK attending the renowned UCL.

We are very proud and wish Ozan continued success in his academic career.
