It was a morning to celebrate the remarkable dedication, perseverance, and enthusiasm that each and every student demonstrated throughout their DofE journey.

During the Ceremony, we were honoured to welcome the British High Commissioner to Cyprus, Mr Irfan Siddiq OBE, from Nicosia, who presented each student with their certificate. We also had the pleasure of greeting the former Air Chief Marshall of the Royal Air Force, Sir Michael Graydon, our school Founders and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Mrs Bilge Nevzat.

ESK Students are #WORLD READY

We are incredibly proud of the responsible young adults, our students have become, throughout their DofE journey. Students positively contributed to their local community through many hours of volunteering, challenged themselves above and beyond to complete the adventurous expedition and developed their personal and teamwork skills along the way. The qualities that the DofE International Award develops in young people are recognized and sought after world-wide, and we are really glad that our talented students recognize this and are keen to dedicate themselves and rise to the challenge.
