  • Leaving students – laptop return

Good morning,

If you are a leaving student (i.e. you will not be returning to YIS next year), you need to drop off your laptop and charger at the IT Office as part of the checkout process. I would strongly encourage you to do that this morning (Thursday). You will need to bring both your charger and laptop.

If you have lost your charger, you will need to buy a new one before we can sign your checkout form. Please come to the IT Office today so we can give you the invoice to pay for the charger (7000 yen).

Drop by the IT Office if you have any questions.

Thanks, (Mr. Edwards)

A couple of reminders about tomorrow’s Awards ceremony. Please go to the foyer at 2.25pm with your pd 6 teacher and go across to the auditorium via the park.

  • Trash & the neighbours

Unfortunately, it seems as if some students are throwing PET bottles over the fence behind the drama room into the neighbour’s house. This is very tacky and if you are found to be doing this, you will be marched around to the house and will apologise in person, as well as having a Progress Report on your file. This is not in line with who we are as a school. (Mr. Snowball)
