Ülkü Akın Middle School
The school was named after Akfen Holding Board of Directors Chairman Hamdi Akın’s late wife Ülkü Akın, who passed away at a young age after a sudden illness. It began taking in students in Ankara at the start of the 1993-1994 school year under an agreement reached between Hamdi Akın and the Ankara Governorate. The school is a gift to the next generation as a sign of the importance attached to education by Akfen Holding, which has set out on a mission to contribute to Turkey’s enlightened future. It was converted into a middle school at the end of the 2011-2012 school year under the National Education Ministry’s 4+4+4 education reform and continues to provide services as the Ülkü Akın Middle School. There are 24 classrooms, two nursey classes, one laboratory, one multi-use hall and a library in the school, where 330 students currently receive education.
