our values

Principal Message

Dear parents, Dear Teachers, Dear Students,

As the principal of International Maarif Schools of Tunisia, I greet you all with my heartfelt feelings.

Turkish Maarif Foundation (TMF) is established by law by the Turkish Parliament to foster cooperation, the cultural and educational exchange between Turkey and her sister countries. By its law of foundation, it is only dedicated to education. Maarif Foundation has thousands of educational experts from different geographies and different nations.

Our vision is to become a pioneering educational institution nurturing pure-minded people who use knowledge for the peace and welfare of humanity.

Our mission is to carry out comprehensive educational activities throughout the world based on the common values of humanity and Anatolian tradition of wisdom.

Our values are:

Confidence which is the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone. When you have confidence, you can do anything. As is our confidence, so is our capacity. You can rely on our school to have the best education in Tunisia based on common values of humanity.

Transparency which is the opposite of secrecy. Secrecy means deliberately hiding your actions; transparency means deliberately revealing them. Our vision is obvious, our mission is as clear as light, and our values are clear. We have a sense of purpose, and this purpose is the peace and the welfare of humanity.

Cooperation which means teamwork that divides the tasks and multiplies the success. We know that coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress and working together is success. We are dedicated to success with the cooperation of teachers, students and parents, all together.

Solidarity which refers to the ties in a society that bind people together as one. We are all a family, and we can only attain our objectives if replace 'I' with 'We', in this case, even the illness becomes wellness.

Competence which is defined as knowledge, skill and specifications which can cause one person to act better. The test of true competence is the result. We know that 'Rome was not built in a day.' Instant success is never possible. Competence results only from sustained, consistent, self-disciplined effort over an extended period of time.

Virtue which is a moral excellence, and the excellence is in the details. We may not be able to do great things on an individual basis, but we can do small things in a great way collaboratively.

Respect to local values is another value, as we know respect is one of the most important things, we can teach a child. The beauty of the world lies in the diversity of its people, and strength lies in differences, not in similarities. We all belong to one human race, and we are trying to reach the common values of humanity.

Inclusive Education which allows students of all backgrounds to learn and grow side by side, to the benefit of all.

Universality, which is also very important value for TMF, because TMF is a universal institution which serves all over the world for the peace and welfare of humanity as I mentioned before.

We are going to work with you all in a collaboration to prepare our kids academically, socially and physically to become life-long learners and socially responsible leaders.

As the Maarif family, we are committed to achieve these goals in the very near future and create exceptional leaders to lead the society to prosperity and venerability.

Best regards,

Hilmi Dönmez
