“Work banishes those three great evils: boredom, vice and poverty.”
Voltaire (French writer and philosopher)
At Üsküdar SEV Schools we do not believe in “free time”; we believe that every moment of our time should be filled with something, and the value of time is determined by what fills it. Throughout their lives, we want our students’ time to be filled with science, art and sport, with useful and fun activities that will help them in their personal development. Club activities help to improve students' self-awareness and offer many important opportunities throughout their development. They learn to think, act, win, lose and carry on together, as a team.
Clubs allow the students to recognize and then develop their abilities and interests through participation in activities. In the clubs, they improve their self-confidence and skills. Clubs are important for the students’ social development. They also enable the students to socialize and to experience the democratic process first hand and to manage teamwork.
