 Pre-School for Students with Foreign Roots

We will start "Pre-School" sessions for students with foreign roots who plan to attend the first year of elementary school from next April. Students can learn about general school rules (cleaning and lunch) and the basic Japanese (parts of the body, numbers, direction, etc.) required in preparation for elementary school life.
Students who do not understand any Japanese are also welcome to attend.
This is not only for children. There is also a "Parents' Group" where fathers and mothers can learn about the necessary things at school, such as school events, what to bring to school, school lunch, etc.
※Note: Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
