"I am proud of them, they work with dedication.. We had a meeting with them about how to serve better in the Turkish School. It is not possible to give better education to Turkish citizens in the existing 9 classrooms of the school. We will increase the number of classrooms to 36 and we will build a kindergarten building. Preschool education is one of our priorities. We will allocate required funds as soon as we return to our country and increase the capacity of the Turkish school. We will also take necessary steps to respond to the needs of teachers varying from language education to professional improvement training programs."
