Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Along with our Turkish Community, we would like to invite all ISR students and their families to celebrate with us the International Children´s Day (23 Nisan Çocuk Bayrami) on May 10th starting at 3.30 pm at ISR. We will hold a number of fun-filled and exciting activities on our school grounds. There is also an outdoor seating area for families to sit, relax and enjoy the afternoon together. The party will be rounded off with a delicious buffet of homemade Turkish specialties. Beverages will also be provided. To honor this special day, we kindly request you to dress your children in apparel that represents your native country, as we would like to take a group picture during the event.

We hope to see all of you and your children on this wonderful day at ISR!
