Together with academic development, one of TED Ankara College’s goals is the concomitant training of social, artistic, creative, inquisitive and productive individuals. With this aim of engendering a habit of personal development and a lifelong love of learning in our students, our school campus provides opportunities for organized sports, art and academic activities aided by the available technology, and the physical layout of the campus. Our students, according to their field of interest, participate in many different activities and gain experience while developing their talents. They are involved in dramatic performances, dancing, folkdances and many artistic and social activities in various school clubs. To foster an understanding of social responsibility, they are also involved in social service projects supported and supervised by our teaching staff.
Debate Club: Members of the Politics and Diplomacy Club attend conferences, panels, workshops and forums organized under the scope of “Model United Nations (MUN)” where educational institutions’ student delegates represent their countries according to the United Nations’ framework. These conferences foster international participation and bring together students from countries such as the USA, England, Italy, France, Germany, Romania, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Our students have attended the following conferences: MUNESCO (Model Unesco), TIMUN (Turkish International Model United Nations), İGF (İstanbul Youth Forum), EuroAsia, YMUN (Yale Model United Nations), GEMUN (Genova Model United Nations), BERMUN (Berlin Model United Nations), TIUF (TED İstanbul National Forum), SAIMUN (St. Andrew’s International Model United Nations). Our students have presented their ideas and prepared resolutions on different issues by representing different countries.
Young Reporters for the Environment: This is a project run by the Foundation of Environmental Education (Young Reporters for the Environment). Our students deal with an environmental issue, work and do research on it and share their findings with another European School via the Internet. The articles based on junior IB students’ study results are then evaluated.
