Our school is located in İstanbul in the Marmara region in the West of Turkey. Istanbul is a big, beautiful city with a population of 17 000 000. Istanbul bridges Asia and Europe both physically and culturally. It is the country's economic, cultural, and historic center. Our school is a high school with a rich provision of extra curricular activities, particularly sports, music and theatre. Some of our students are very good at football, basketball, voleyball, cross-country running, and chess and got many prizes in these fields. The school provides general education and its main vocation is to prepare students for the university entrance exams. We are a school of about 1800 students ranging from 14 to 18 years old. There are 100 teachers. In our school, there are computer rooms, 3 science laboratories, 41 classrooms, a conference hall, and a canteen. Two foreign languages are taught in our school: English and French. This project will be a good incentive to motivate them. One of our main objectives is to open up international cooperation. Students at this school come from a low to middle socioeconomic background, which makes it very difficult and, in some cases, impossible for them to go and to study abroad. This Erasmus+ Project would provide them precisely with an opportunity to meet students from European countries, and it would be an excellent opportunity for interacting and working with these students while they practice and learn English. With the help of this project, we plan to make our students and teachers conscious consumers. Apart from that we observe that the majority of our students and generally the youngsters are used to eating junk food without paying any attention to the nutritive elements with a result to get used to unhealthy diet. Our school carried Comenius Project in 2011-2012 under the title of ‘National Values’ with six partners.
