Welcome to London Bridge International School

February News

The penultimate month of the school year is here….can it be true? Only two more months and all of our students will be moving up again. So what’s happening? A romantic event (Valentine’s Day), another scary happening (Setsubun) and all that end-of-year stuff (class observations and reports). Enjoy the busy weeks ahead with us!

London Bridge Primary Education Facility Opening Soon

There will be a new After School Program for elementary school aged students starting from June 2019. This new course will offer a broad elementary school curriculum in English for students living in Japan. The teaching program will be created and led by Jon Bennett, a fully qualified and certificated Primary Education specialist from the UK, with more than thirty years of teaching experience. The new facility, located in Kyomachi in central Kumamoto is essentially another branch of London Bridge International School operating off-site. More details about the new school can be found in Japanese on the Japanese language pages. If any English speaking, foreign national parents are interested in finding out more in English, please contact the school.

January News

Welcome back to the winter term at LB. We hope you enjoyed the Christmas and New Year break and are rested and ready for the school routine: dropping off, picking up, studying and playing depending on who you are. This month we have a couple of lower school performances to look forward to.

December News

Welcome to the beginning of winter at London Bridge. The festive season is here, so we can expect the usual Christmas celebrations. We are hoping that Santa will drop by with some presents again this month. The other big event is, of course, The Family Show, which is not looking very festive this year, as none of the classes are presenting a performance with a Christmas theme. Too bad, but who needs Christmas when you have other great stories to tell.

November Comments

Winter is coming…dark evenings and cold mornings. But when the sun comes up the weather is perfect for a picnic. Most classes went to Aso Milk Farm in the country for their autumn picnic trip, while Venus went to the Dinosaur Museum in Mifune. We also have some performances when parents can have a little preview of the Family Show.

October Comments

Whew! It’s cooled down a bit at last. The heat of summer is behind us and we can look forward to some outside play in the pleasant autumn weather. This month we have our second set of class observations and one of our favorite events. That’s right… it’s time for ghosts and monsters once again. Oh noooooooooooo!

The September Comments

Hello and welcome to the second term here at London Bridge. Just time to get back into the school routine before…BANG!… it’s Sports Day. So start training and exercising in time for the big event. Let’s see how fast you can run when you hear these words…‘On your marks, get set, GO!’

July Message

What’s happening this July? Well, we have the last day of the first term of course, and those wishes for the bamboo branches, and lots of water play too. There’s also a health check and a fire drill to make a note of. But otherwise, nothing special, just lots of regular classroom teaching and learning, which is how we like it!

June Message

Summer time is coming: the long days, hot sunshine and sweaty students. We’re looking forward to lots of refreshing pool time and water play. But before that, we have the wet, damp and sweaty rainy season on its way. We hope we can enjoy Venus summer camp in the last of the sunny spring weather.
