Ship Visitors from Germany


We had a couple of very interesting visitors who happened to drop by, two German engineers from a container ship in port for 24 hours. They saw the school from the mono-liner. Curious to see a German school overseas, they came in to look around and also had a chat with our students about life on a big ship. Very interesting for all!

Christmas Market
December 14th 10.20am - 12.00pm
We will open with performances at 10:20AM in the Multi-Purpose Room.
After that, feel free to wander through our market square and see the wonderful Christmas crafts our students have produced using natural, recycled, and various other materials. Some students will be offering activities and others selling treats to eat! The Christmas market will end at 12:00PM, when the children will gather together back inside the Multi-Purpose Room to close our celebrations.

After our whole school gathering (and a visit from Santa!), all students will return to their homeroom classes for 1PM dismissal. Children grades Pre-KG to Grade 1 must bepicked up by parents at their homerooms.

Open your hearts as well as your wallets, as proceeds from the sales of students’ work will go to charity! This year we are donating our earnings to help raise search and rescue dogs here in Kobe. Barring a natural disaster that needs their help, the dogs will be present to greet customers at a special booth during the event!


Last Day
December 14th

Just a reminder we will end school at 1.00pm on our last day of school.
