Welcome to London Bridge International School

It’s August

The summer holidays are here, but that doesn’t mean that LB is closed. Three weeks of summer school and another week of Extended Day Care are scheduled over the holidays. There will be different staff members working in different classrooms, so be prepared for some surprises.

July Message

Here we are sizzling in the summer weather. It’s the last month of the term before the long holidays. That means we have three more weeks of regular studying and water play before summer school starts, and then we have more studying and water play for those lucky kids who can come. Oh yes, and don’t forget about the Star Festival, we are making our wishes again.

June Message

Suddenly it’s getting hotter and more humid. It’s that time of year again when spring comes to an end with a great splash! We have an overnight summer camp for Venus to start the month and then we have will have regular water play if the weather is warm enough. We will finish the month with class observations. We hope you can come.

May Message

The end of spring is coming. Say hello to warmer weather and lots of outside play before the rain and mosquitoes come! We have upper class performances to look forward to (Venus and Jupiter), followed by the Venus summer camp at the beginning of June.

April News

Here we are again. The flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. New parents are coming and some children are crying. These are the sights and sounds of April at London Bridge. Hello and welcome to our new students and all those younger brothers and sisters we’ve been waiting to meet.

March News

Spring is in the air. This means it’s time for changes at school. Everybody’s going to be moving up a grade. Jupiter kids will be knocking Venus kids out of the Venus classroom, and into a new school. So we’ll have a farewell graduation ceremony for them of course, but what else? A Goodbye Picnic and Parent-Teacher Meetings, that’s what.

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.
