University and most recently played with the Houston Dash of
the Womens Premier Soccer League in the USA. The students

Fall Break
OIS wishes everyone a restful break and encourages everyone to
reconnect with their family. One of the IB Learner Profile traits
is balanced and it is important for families to spend time
together, especially in a country like Japan with such long
working hours and busy schedules. Wednesday November 23 is
Japan Labor Day and Thursday November 24 is American
Thanksgiving. School returns on Tuesday November 29.
