Dear Mr.Ulric Shannon,

Consul General of Canada in Istanbul,

15 trees have been planted in Göllü village, Beykoz district, Istanbul in memory of Canadian soldiers and Kabatas High School students who took part in the Battle of Gallipoli.

Atatürk, the founder of the Turkish Republic, delivered the following message to all the mothers who lost their sons during the Battle of Gallipoli: " You, the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have become our sons as well.

The heroic soldiers of both nations resting in peace in Gallipoli will always be remembered with respect.

As Kabatas High School students and teachers, we would like to express our gratitude for your support for Kabatas East Asia & World Project aiming to contribute to strengthening the relations between Canada and Turkey.

Canadians at Battle of Gallipoli

The Newfoundlanders were the only North American troops at Gallipoli, fighting alongside British and ANZAC — Australian and New Zealand Army Corps — forces.

Newfoundland wasn't a part of Canada in 1914. When the call for troops came it was its own dominion, and hundreds of young men rushed to enlist. By September 1915, more than 1,000 Newfoundlanders had landed in Gallipoli.

Around 40 soldiers from Newfoundland lost their lives during the Battle of Gallipoli.

Gallipoli Memorial built in Canada

A war memorial honoring fallen Turkish and Canadian soldiers who fought against each other in the Battle of Çanakkale, known as Gallipoli in the West, during World War I, was opened on May 21, 2016 in Canada.

The memorial in Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia province, was decorated with Turkish and Canadian flags.

The monument bears inscriptions telling the story of the joint history of Turkish and Canadian troops, as well as carrying the words of Turkey’s founder, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, all the mothers who lost their sons during the Battle of Gallipoli.

Kabatas High School Students at Balkan Wars, Battle of Gallipoli and Turkish War of Independence

During the Balkan Wars (1912 - 1913), Battle of Gallipoli (1915 - 1916) and Turkish War of Independence (1919 - 1923), Kabataş Erkek Lisesi sent numerous students and teachers to the battlefront. As all the senior class students attended these wars, none of them could graduate from the school between 1912 - 1913 and 1915 - 1916.

Owing to the attendance of almost all the students and teachers to Turkish War of Independence, only 5 students could graduate from the school between 1919 - 1923. Some Kabatas Erkek Lisesi students lost their lives defending the sovereignty of the nation because of this a monument built in honor of martyrs.

Each year, the Kabatas High School Martys’ Monument is a gathering place for the students and teachers to commemorate the Martyrs who sacrificed themselves for the sake of the country.

The Executive Board members of Kabatas East Asia & World Project submitted a letter to the Consul General of Canada in Istanbul and requested his support for the articles of the Project as follows;

14. Sister school partnerships broaden students awareness of the world around them and foster life-changing educational oppportunities.

International partnerships develop cultural comprehension, sensitivity and an appreciation of a different way of life.Intercultural exchanges encourage greater competency and confidence in language learning and communication skills.

We aim to sign sister school agreements with high schools from Korea, Japan, China, Australia, Britain, Canada and the USA to develop friendship, promote mutual understanding and cultural awareness.

17. More than 130 million people around the world need humanitarian assistance in order to survive. This is why, for the first time in the 70-year history of the United Nations, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon convened the World Humanitarian Summit to generate commitments to reduce suffering and deliver better for people around the globe.

The Summit took place in Istanbul on 23-24 May 2016 and convened 9,000 participants from around the world to support a new shared Agenda for Humanity and take action to prevent and reduce human suffering.

The Agenda calls on global leaders and all humanitarian actors to act on five core responsibilities to prevent and reduce human suffering;

- Political Leadership to Prevent and End Conflicts

- Uphold the Norms that Safeguard Humanity

- Leave No One Behind

- Change People's Lives: From Delivering Aid to Ending Need

- Invest in Humanity

Kabatas East Asia & World Project aims to contribute to the realization of the five core responsibilities of the Agenda for Humanity by taking part in the social responsibility projects of UN, member states of UN and non govermental organisations.

We will contact UN, member states of UN and non governmental organisations for requesting to take part in their social responsibility projects for humanity to realize that purpose.
