  • 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)

  • 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)

  • My Contest

Hello. I am currently participating in a contest to win a scholarship for school. In the entry I talked about my experiences with cancer patients in Vietnam and how I got the students from YIS to help support the children in the hospitals who cannot afford the basic necessities that many take for granted. I would really appreciate it if I could get support, if people could vote for me!!
