All the students in the basketball club have the chance to participate in the school team as well.
The Chess Club carries out activities to teach the game of chess, – which is at the same time an art, a sport and a science – to those students who do not know to play it, and to ensure that students who are already interested develop their knowledge and abilities further.

In the 2016-2017 academic year, the members of the Colourful Walls Club will be provided with environments for implementing various painting and sculpture techniques. As our students add their creativeness to the environment in which they live, and give them an aesthetic dimension, we aim to convert our campus into an open air museum.

Students who join the Organic Life Club will be involved in a wide range of activities.

The ENKA Tech Makers Club will continue its activities under a new name from now on: R&D ENKA. The students in the R&D ENKA Club will put their curiosity and investigative skills to work by developing various projects. Meanwhile, the club members are also working to solve the problems that emerged during the one-to-one iPad training sessions, and to provide support to the in-class application for the use of technology in education. For this purpose, they receive Apple technical education at the Troy Apple Center. The members are also engaged in raising awareness in the school community based on the information contained in user manuals for technological tools. They also organize algorithm and coding activities in the school. In addition to these activities, our club member students make the preparations for the ENKA Technology Awareness Day, the second of which has gone ahead. Here, the focus is on students’ recognition of new technologies and the factors required to care in the digital world. In this context, the members prepare Scratch applications and a three-dimensional pen (3DOODLER) booth, as well as working on awareness streets, activities using MYO Wrist Bands and various other booths. Our students have developed the spirit of “Being a Maker” during club production works throughout the term. End-of-year club activities continue with the creation of holograms and Mbot robots using MakeBlock programming.
Probably everyone has had a dream of discovering what lies underwater. Human beings became acquainted with the ocean floors for the first time 5,000 years ago, and the desire to explore it further has endured right down to the present day. How about discovering this world together with us? How about lifting off the mysterious lid, peering below the surface, and helping more people appreciate the fascinating beauty of the sub-marine?
The Short Film Club is made up of students who are interested in the cinema and short films. We work on film shooting techniques, acting for the camera, creating fiction, preparing synopses and creating sets.

Students who are members of the Tennis Club get to know the sport of tennis in an entertaining way through educational tennis games. During these activities, they have to use all their muscle groups, including their brains.
As tennis is an individual sport, we choose training methods that improve the players’ decision-making on court. In this way, the students improve their ability to make the right decisions to achieve success.
Tennis is also a sport full of individual mistakes. When our students make a mistake, they also learn to overcome the psychological impact of this mistake, and become better at focusing on the struggle for the next point. Accordingly, they improve their abilities to deal with any negative situations in which they may find themselves.
All in all, the tennis activities are conducted with a focus on instilling self-confidence in the child.
Students who are talented and interested in the theatre can join this club. Our goal is to teach them about the arts of the theatre and give them opportunities to perform on stage.

Students who participate in the activities of the volleyball club learn the game rules and basic skills of volleyball. Playing the game contributes to their mental and physical development.

The most skilful, ambitious and successful students in our volleyball club participate in the school teams, and the club hour becomes an extra opportunity for practice.

It focuses on creativity, analytical thinking and research skills. It gives students the opportunity to solve problems using their own creativity and to compete with one another in this area.
Our mission is to bring up young people who can use problem-solving skills to make a positive contribution to the future of society.
Students in the FPSPI Club generate scenarios and write solution scenarios for them. They learn how they think, not what they think.
The members of the Press Publication and Communications Club take on responsibilities in the process of preparing the school newspaper for publication twice a year. The news and articles written by the students are combined with the articles of the teachers to produce the school newspaper.
Members of the Club also work hard to compile the activities submitted by the various departments for the publication of the school magazine. Our students are responsible for collecting and editing the articles in the magazine.
All this work is done jointly by the students in a social activity hour one day a week.
One of the aims of the Club is that its member students should internalise the correct and effective use of our living Turkish. We are careful to ensure that the students in the Club learn the rules of Turkish and make good use of Turkish a principle by which they live.

As conscious individuals with an interest in science, our principal aim is to continue our efforts to raise the level of environmental awareness in our school. Following the work which we have done in the past few years on the use of plastic cups and recycling, we plan to organize activities for the whole school community this year in order to sustain the awareness which we have built among the students with respect to electricity and water consumption and the use of paper.
In addition, the members of the Science Workshop Club will conduct STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Maths) activities, which have come to play a prominent role in science education as a way of bringing up individuals who are creative and solution-focused.
The Strategy and Mind Games Club has been established to bring out the creativity of our students and to improve their concentration, problem-solving, critical thinking, time management and three-dimensional perception skills. The Club is concerned both with mind games that can be played by groups – like Quoridor, Abalone, Mangala and Callisto – and with individual games like Snake Cube, Brainbox and Tower of Hanoi.
The Club seeks to develop our students’ mathematical perspectives through games, so enabling them to use mathematics more effectively to resolve the problems they face in their daily life. In due course, we aim to prepare students to take part in the various activities and competitions organized in the field of mind games.

After a certain time period, we aimed at upbringing students for various activities and competitions organized about Mind Games and participate in these activities.
The students in the Tablet Music Club work on songs using applications such as “Garageband” and “Noteworks”. We support the work we do on the tablets by studying music theory and songs with Boomwhackers (note pipes). Our aim is to perform our works as a club on ENKA Art Day at the end of the year.
Entrepreneurs are persons who visualize something and make it happen. They have the ability to visualize something and, when they do so, to see clearly how they can bring it about.
