Esteemed Students and Distinguished Parents,
We are meeting at our schools with a new beginning... Our students and teachers, who will fill the classrooms with the first bell after a long summer vacation, will open the door of the new school year with great excitement. All beginnings are precious moments that cause new hopes, dreams and new goals to flourish. That's why each of us is partners in this excitement.
Individuals can adapt to the society they live in, gain personality, and become a good person and citizen only through a qualified education. Every positive development in education and training is of vital importance for the continuity of the existence of a nation, its development, strengthening and reaching a prosperous future. As the Ministry of National Education, we are determined to continue our work uninterruptedly, with the understanding of this powerful effect of education on the future.
We will work together with determination and perseverance in the new school year to achieve our ' Century of Türkiye ' goals with the strong leadership of our President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, his belief in our beloved nation and his support for education.
We are all the members of a strong team marching on confidently in the same direction. Whatever we envision for the future of our country and do regarding education, we will do it together. Our teachers, who have the biggest share in the successes to be realized in education, are the locomotive of education and the core element of our Ministry, the most dynamic members of this team, which strives to shape the future of our country with education by setting their heart on education. That is why teachers are the ones who will prepare the children of the country for the future in the "Century of Türkiye", the second century of the Republic of Türkiye. You are the ones who will guide our children, touch their lives and shape our civilization vision with our cause of education. Our beloved nation, which will reach the future strongly, will rise on your shoulders
We are a big and strong family. Your children, which you have raised selflessly, are entrusted to us. We will prepare our children, our most precious ones and our future, for life together with you. I would like to thank each and every one of you for the sensitivity you will show in the new applications we will implement in order to ensure the smooth continuation of education in the new term. I would also like to thank you for the time and dedication you will devote to the education of our students who are in their developmental age. The education of our children is a big and important responsibility that we cannot handle alone. Let's shoulder this responsibility together for the future of our children and our country, support our own children and all the children around us. Let's consider the 2023-2024 school year as a period of social mobilization in education.
You will find opportunities to learn together, grow healthily and explore together in your schools this year. Each of you will maximize your potential. You are a candidate to be talented individuals that will contribute to the world, humanity and your country. Our teachers are here to support and guide you in the best way possible. Our parents are ready to support your success in cooperation with you. Your only duty is to prepare for the future in the best way possible. I hope the new era brings health and success.
With these thoughts, I wish the 2023-2024 school year to be beneficial for our students, teachers, parents and our beloved nation."
