  • Announcement from HS Student Council (HS & Gr. 8)

Welcome to your new home YIS!
Last year, we promised that on April 2018, we will have something huge announcing. The YIS App was developed by the PR team and app developer manager, Junryu Fu, from YIS HS Stuco, to create a new platform for student communication, by unifying all platforms in school into one place. Additionally, to make student life convenient, we have included different aspects of student life into this single web app. We will conduct a trial base within High School to try and see how this works out!
The YIS App is currently a developed web app, ready for all mobile usage by simply adding the app onto your home screen. Ask your stuco member for more information!
Please use the following link:
watch the video below to get a feel of the new YIS APP. Please help us fill in the “survey” section from the upper right hand menu button, so that we can develop this app to suit you best!
Our HOW TO HELP THE APP page has being updated, so that you can really understand why this app was made. We will publish a monthly report on the usage of the app to show how we are doing!

Thank you ! (HS Stuco )

  • Red and White Fundraising Concert to benefit the Chiku Center

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Red and White Fundraising Concert to benefit the Chiku Center just before Spring Break. We raised an incredible ¥43,403 with the White Team coming out ahead with the total raised to help the Chiku Center. The acts were all incredible but special congratulations are in order for all of the white team performers. The total amount raised is a new Red and White record and opens up possibilities to help that we haven’t been able to consider before. We are currently discussing with the Chiku Center how this money can most benefit people living in poverty in the Kotobuki-cho area of Yokohama. Thank you to everyone who contributed and supported this effort. We will keep you updated on how the money is put to good use. (Mr. Clark)
