Last Day on the 18th December - Information
We will have a very special day on the 18th with a suprise visitor for the children! Hint - red clothes, big sack etc. And coronavirus health and safety policy compliant. To allow time to get round all classes we will have a full day programme so the school day this year will end at 3.30pm. 

If any families have already made travel plans for the afternoon, please just let your homeroom teacher know your child will leave at 1.00pm. They will miss the visitor though.

Important - lunches
We have not ordered school lunches for the 18th so all families please supply your child with a lunch.


Coronavirus Update
You may have seen that the number of Coronavirus cases in Japan is rising steeply at the moment. We just want to let you know we are fully informed and making sure our health policy is still working properly to keep all the students safe. We are also in touch with our school doctor regarding the situation.


Parent Survey
Tick box only, no writing needed, takes about 1 minute!


Online Learning Software
We are reviewing our online learning policy right now to prepare for any school closure that may happen again due to Coronavirus. 
We have postive experiences with Seesaw and think it would be a good idea to use this instead of Google Classrooms, but we would like to hear your opinion about this.

Big Thankyou!
To our PTA for the work in helping us remodel our red sofa corner!

Coronavirus and Communication to the Community
We would like to thank all our community members for their patience and support this week due to our coronavirus experience. We have learnt a lot and updated our policy which we will publish again this week.

One of the biggest points from parents feeding back to us was about information. We held back due to our concerns about personal privacy, however we see that people need to know more details and it is our responsibility to communicate this. In future we will send out more details to the community.

And please remember, we only want essential visitors onto the campus. Lets not get too relaxed.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Grade 4 Assembly

Online

Next week will be our first assembly of the year. To avoid visitors on campus, we will pre-record the assembly and next week we will upload it to our  YouTube channel.

We will have our Halloween next week as the real halloween is actually in the school vacation. Once again our PTA have done a great job!
