Our Founder Mrs. Efdal Irmak
and Mr. Turgut Irmak

Background

Our founder Efdal Irmak, together with her husband Turgut Irmak - also an educator, established EFDAL Private Primary School in Göztepe's Yeşilçeşme Street in 1983. With the introduction of eight-year compulsory education, Efdal Primary School changed into EFDAL Private Kindergarten and Primary School in 1997.

Following the static analysis of ITU, even though there were no damages after the earthquakes of August 17 and September 13, our school was the first to rebuild its school building as steel construction over the summer break. As of year 2000, our students have been pursuing their education with a life safety of 100% in case of an earthquake in the Istanbul region.
