The Crane, 25 February 2024

Welcome from James Steward

Congratulations this week to our Grade 10 MYP students and staff who embraced and completed the MYP Personal Project Exhibition in amazing style. Their work and finished products were exceptional. Thank you to Mr Sekyi, teachers and mentors that supported this challenging and rewarding process. Our many visitors during Open Campus were very impressed as well! 

Gratitude is also offered to Mrs Kamibeppu and Junko Sensei for leading our MUN Team (Model United Nations) on Thursday and Friday in Kobe at Marist Brothers International School. I am informed that our nine student representatives performed extraordinarily well. Our next world leaders are in the making and already contributing to society. 

HIS talent was prevalent this week as Secondary students ran a karaoke competition, while Primary featured a PYP Talent Show. Both events will continue in the coming weeks seeking to discover future performers to star on the world stage!

Finally, I am informed that Masayo Sensei is getting quite old, according to her students! At the time of this picture taken below, it is believed that she was 127 years young by ECKG! Well done, Masayo Sensei for being so energetic!

Please read further for more information.
