Introducing our new Co-Chairs 

International Club

The International Club recently hosted two events to conclude the school year: a dinner and a Coffee Morning. During these gatherings, we said farewell to some cherished members and welcomed new ones.

I will be stepping down as Chair and handing over to Cheryl Chatwin and Yuliya Folland, who I am confident will do a fantastic job. I want to thank everyone for their support and assistance during my time as Chair.

Pre-Prep discover life in Japan!

Japan (1)

On Tuesday morning Pre-Prep children were treated to a fascinating talk by Saori Little about going to school in Japan.

Schooling in Japan begins from the age of 6 and children walk (even in snow) or use local transport to get to school without an accompanying adult. They take turns to serve lunch to their school friends and the school is cleaned daily. The daily cleaning not only involves the classrooms, halls and pool before summer, but also the bathrooms. The children were a definite no on cleaning the toilets!

Schools in Japan have regular earthquake drills where the children use a special seat cushion to protect their heads during the evacuation.

Saori spoke about different public holidays in Japan including celebrating children, boys, girls and the elderly.

Many thanks to Saori for such an interesting and informative assembly.Line

Members of the International Club enjoyed a glorious, sunny walk around Kemsing last Friday.

Thank you to Cheryl Chatwin who led the group on a circular walk. We were treated to lovely weather and beautiful scenery (once we made it up the hill!). We enjoyed drinks and food at a local cafe afterwards. Thanks to everyone who came.
