Mostafa said his teachers are not only taking care of his lessons but also lending support to everything of their students. “Since the day I entered from the door of this school as a kid, I have experienced a serious change in my life. I’m very thankful to my school for this reason,” Mostafa said.
International Hope Turkish Schools Deputy General Director Yavuz Koca said they’re operating in Bangladesh since 1996 and that they’re promoting the brand of the schools by success of their students. He said one of their students, Ragib, raised the name of his school and country in international arena by becoming first in the math exam. “We are exceptionally delighted over this. We congratulate our student,” Koca said.
