We were very fortunate to have the Japan Blind Soccer Association teach our Grade 4 students about blind soccer. It is their first time coming to an international school.

On Friday 24 May, 71 Juniors, Seniors and guests joined the 2019 Prom at the Grand Oriental Hotel.

The guests were treated to two musical performances, Mr Matsumoto’s toast and, of course, were invited to elect the Prom Court! Congratulations to Sei... Read More
