Another shout out to the Saint Maur parent community, who have organized, baked and helped out at the French Bake Sale last week to raise funds for Tiphaine Veron, a French citizen, who went missing in Nikko last year. The baked goods were of highest quality and sold out quickly! As a result, ¥219,291 was raised that will help Tiphaine's family in continuing their search for her in Japan. Tiphaine's family was moved to see this outstanding generosity from our community and Damien and Sybille... Read More

We pray this sincerely through whatever faith or philosophy we believe in.
