A Day of Teamwork
On 28th February, KKTC Özel Eğitim Vakfı
(ÖZEV) from Nicosia came to GAU and had a
game of football and basketball against some of
the year 6 students. In the 80 minute game of
football and basketball, the year 6 students
were defeated by them. It was obvious that
both teams were having fun and eager to win.
After the long match finished, both teams were
tired, but still in a good mood. Before the
match, both schools got their photographs
taken with their teachers. Also, the winning
team had a small celebration with juices and biscuits, snacks…
ACADEMIC BOARD
etc. The Nicosia school was well-trained and most
importantly, they had a fair game and had
TEAMWORK, which was the whole point of the
game. The football game was played with 5-6 people,
and the year 6 boys mostly played this game. After
that, the basketball game was played with 5 people
again, but the year 6 girls played the first half and the
boys played the second half.
The winning team left the sports-hall in a victorious
and good mood. This match was not about
competition, it was about TEAMWORK and fair-play.

Fetih 1453 Review
Fetih 1453 tarihteki en önemli fethi mükemmel bir şekilde izleyicilere aktarabilen bir film. Filmin efektleri ve oyuncuların göstermiş olduğu performans filmi izlenmeye değer kılan unsurlardandır. Fetih 1453 İstanbul’un fethedilişini konu almakla birlikte bize tarihimizde yapılan kahramanlıkları hatırlatmış oldu. Zevkle izlenilebilecek bir film olması dışında aynı zamanda da eğitsel bir yönü olması filme artı bir puan daha kazandırmıştır.Kısacası bu film
tarihi ve kahramanlıkları seyirciyi sıkmadan anlatabilen, seyircilerin aklında kalıcı olabilecek niteliklere sahiptir.

Yurt Sevgisi
Yurt sevgisinin geliştiği, vatanına
bağlı bireylerin arttığı ülkelerin yıkılması mümkün değildir. Çok çalışmak,
başarılı olmak, kurallara uymak,
aydın olmak, kültürlü olmak, medeni
olmak gibi unsurlar bizim hedefimiz
olan gelişmiş ülkeler seviyesine ulaşmamızı sağlar. Başarmak için çok
çalıştığımız zaman bize yardım eden
ve destek olan ülke sayısı artacaktır.
Geleceğimizin aydınlık olması için
karamsar olmadan çok çalışmalıyız.
Vatanına bağlı, yurdunu seven insan
yetiştirmek için küçük yaştan başlayarak okullarda yurt sevgisi dersleri
arttırılmalıdır. Birlik, beraberlik,
huzur, başarı, kendine güven ve geleceğe umutla bakan gençler olmamız
için gerekli çalışmalar hızlandırılmalıdır.
Yurdumuzun ileri seviyeye yük-

Dylan Djavit (French Teacher-Elementary School)
Bonjour !
My name is Dylan Djavit and I am
proud to be a French teacher at
G.A.U’s Elementary section.
My mother is French and I was born in
a beautiful town in the centre of
France.
As my father is from Cyprus, I regularly came here as
a child with my parents during summer holidays and
now I 'll be able to enjoy Cyprus all year long !
I graduated in English, Mandarin Chinese and
International Management during my studies in
France and then specialized in teaching for 5 years in
China and 3 years in France. I love reading, meeting
people from different cultures and learning foreign
languages. I hope I will see you soon !
A bientot !
selmesi için biz gençler cesaretimizi
arttırmalı, aldığımız eğitim ve kültür
ile vatan sevgisinin en kıymetli temsilcileri olmalıyız. Mustafa Kemal’in
söylediği gibi ‘İstikbal gençlerindir’
sözü unutulmamalıdır. Cumhuriyeti
yükseltecek ve devam ettirecek bizleriz. Genç nesil olarak geleceğimizin
daha iyi olması kendi elimizdedir. El
ele vererek sonsuza dek yurdumuzun
yaşamasını ve çağdaş uygarlık seviyesinin üstüne çıkarılmasını sağlamak azmi ve inancı içinde özveriyle
çalışmalıyız.
Vatanımızda bölünmeden, huzurlu,
mutlu ve gelecekten emin olarak
yaşamamız için geçmişten dersler
çıkararak birlik ve beraberlik içinde
daha çok çalışmalı ve yurdumuzu
daha çok sevmeliyiz.
