Darüssafaka middle school students made it to the number one in the Local Finals of Destination Imagination Contest among 33 teams in the Fine Arts category. “Freaky DACKA” as they call their team, has the right to represent Turkey in the global finals.

Competiton which aims to young people gain life-long skills in a safe environment while serving as a source of entertainment took place in Kusadasi on 22-24 April 2019.

What is Destination Imagination?

Destination Imagination’s main program is based on “creative problem solving with a focus on the process” theory. Its aim is to foster young people's creative, critical thinking, collaboration, efficient use of time and problem solving skills. Composed of 4-7 people, each team works on a Team Challenge for about 10 weeks focusing on a theme like fine arts, structural, improvisional, scientific or technical design, and comes up with a solution. Instant Challenges drive the teams to think, decide and implement quickly.

Each student at Darüssafaka is a member of one of the most extensive and connected families in Turkey. The sense of fraternity, and the support that comes with it, remain with our students throughout both their personal and professional lives. 

Thank you once again for making these accomplishments possible and sharing in our mission to create "equal opportunity in education” in Turkey.
