MIS are sad to be saying goodbye to Ozaki-san


one of our cleaners. Unfortunately he is leaving

replacement will be passed on at the right time.
Ozaki-san has been with MIS for three years
now and always taken great pride in his work.
We wish him well in the future!

Grade 5 Trip to Tokyo Sea Life Park
Grade 5 children had an exciting and interesting visit to
the Tokyo Sea Life Park last Thursday. They were able to
see tuna swimming endlessly, rare species of fish and ex-
perience the touch pools with rays, catsharks and dog-
sharks! The turtles added to the experience moving among
the camouflaged karei. They learned much about aquar-
ium life!

Reminder that next Thursday on July 3rd there is a
Grade 5 Transfer Meeting where MIS staff will talk
about options for children when they graduate from
Makuhari International School.
School Survey Letter
This will be distributed to parents on July 11th.

Staffing
MIS are pleased to announce that Miss Amatt will be
officially taking over as Kindergarten Co-ordinator
from July 1st. Miss Amatt went through a rigorous in-
terviewing process and has spent the last month (as
well as currently) working with Mr. Rogers to ensure
there is a smooth transfer. I am sure this will be the
case. We wish her well and are confident that she has
the right blend of skills to help continue to improve
what we already do in Kindergarten. In regards to an
extra K2 teacherI would like to inform parents that I
have interviewed several excellent candidates and will
give more news about this to parents at the appropriate
time.
