Communication is Key

Here's a sample of Saika's English B MYP Newsletter & Kyle's P6 PYP Newsletter @ our current Stonehill International School. Click to scroll.

We hope this acts as a glimpse into our passion for engaging learning experiences and value in maintaining strong communication with parents.

Saika's newsletter goes out twice a semester and is written in English, Japanese, and Korean. The latter, Saika achieved through the help of her previous Korean students' CAS (Creativity Activity Service) project.

Kyle's newsletter goes out weekly and is loaded with photos of students engaged in their learning.

We spend our summers in Canada, where to boys learn so much from nature and about themselves. In Japan, they explore theme parks and dog parks.

Kyle's Extra Curricular Activity

Kyle is a football coach again this year. He has also coached tennis and badminton teams through successful seasons and tournaments. He has led engaging and instructional dodgeball, hockey, basketball, and ping pong after school activities. He loves scrabble, crosswords and chess too!

Kyle has a strong camping background from his 13 summers at Camp Hurontario (a Canadian wilderness tripping camp). There, he learned how to canoe, kayak, sail, climb/ropes, set up camp, portage, appreciate nature, and much more. He instilled these skills and values in his campers during his last 4 summers as a counselor himself.

Kyle loves sports, especially tennis, squash, baseball, and football. He's completed many solo cycling adventures across the globe, including China, Italy, France, Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, and India. These experiences have helped Kyle become more open-minded with adversity for risk, problem-solving, and real world challenges.
