Çekmeköy Saadet Yılmaz Primary School
Our school was first opened in 1960 for education with one classroom and one lodging. The combined class (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th class in combination) was applied. Our school continued education in this way till 1997 when the education volunteer and Ömerli Mayor Dr. Erdal Yilmaz and his wife Saadet Yilmaz rebuilt it. In 1998, the building was moved to the present building and the education is being continued here. Between 1998 and 2003, our school continued to implement the combined class application.
