Students of the International Turkish Hope School are seen performing at its Year-End Program 2018 at the school's Main Auditorium on Saturday.

Campus Report :
The International Turkish Hope School (ITHS) celebrated the Year-End Program 2018 on Saturday. The program was held at the Main Auditorium with an uplifting end to an academic year of reinvigoration and renewed momentum. The stage was embellished magnificently and the performing students draped themseleves with appealing attires according to their performances.
ITHS Chairman Yasar Savran, Principal Roksana Zarin and Preschool And Primary Head of Section Nazmun Nahar and other teachers, parents and students were present on the occasion.
The event started with the recitation of Surah Fatiha with English translation which was followed by heartwarming National Anthem sung by class of grade 5. Nazmum Nahar delivered a warm welcoming speech, which was followed by an exceptional and inspiring speech by Yasar Sarvan. Next was an overwhelming rendition of a lovely folk song, "Shundari Komola" by the students of grade 1 and 2. Following the sequence, there were electrifying dance performances by the students of 3, 4 and 5, Bangla poem "Bristi", a very aesthetically pleasing drama "Golden Touch" which depicted the story of King Midas and his greed, and delivered an important message about making wise choices in life. A video capturing all the memorable moments of the various activities and events held throughout the academic year was viewed, which was followed by English songs "Champion" and "Dreamers", and two delightful English poems "All things bright and beautiful" - a perfectly synchronized musical poem, and "The boy with the similar name" - a poem that managed to send a strong message about anti-bullying.
There were also two award giving ceremonies where we presented our respected teachers with crests for the best performance in all their school years, perfect attendance, and a special award for the teacher who has stayed with us for the last 10 years. And the second one was where we awarded the students with certificates for never missing a day of school despite illness or bad weather conditions, which is truly praiseworthy.
The remarkable program had everyone's faces present there beaming with excitement, which was a symbol of our success. The effort of all the school members given in this program was worth all the appreciation. Finally, this mesmerizing program came to an end, but every end has a new beginning. With lots of hope, ambition, and confidence we await for another fresh new 2018-2019 academic year.
