Summer Open School Program 2016


At Jingumae International Exchange School we are pleased to be offering a Summer Open School programme for the duration of 4 weeks (11th July - 5th August). Our programme offers an excellent opportunity for students to enjoy fun and exciting activities in the educationally stimulating environment of JIES. It is also a great chance for new and potential students to get acclimatized to the school environment and facilities as well as meet and work with members of the teaching and administrative staff. As Summer Open School days are timetabled at a similar pace to regular term-time school days at JIES this allows new students to get used to the feel of normal JIES school day, which puts them in an excellent position ready to learn with their new peers at the beginning of the academic year.


Our Summer Open School runs for 4 weeks, with each week being a separate topic. During the week children will have the opportunity to participate in games, drama activities, group projects and other activities thematically linked to that week's topic. Also, on the Friday of each given week all Summer Open School groups will go on a group excursion out of the school to a park, a factory etc which is also linked to the activities they have been working on. This should be a fun way to complete a given topic, and also serves to allow children to make a close link with the themes they have been studying on the school premises.


On top of a thematic week of learning all students will be allocated time in an enriching selection of other disciplines such as ICT, Arts & crafts and science plus they will have a chance to relax with movie time. Also weather permitting there will, on some weeks, be the opportunity for children to make use of water activities to cool down.

During JIES Summer Open School there will be 2 classes available:

Classes Age
Junior Group

4 - 6 years old

Senior Group

7 - 12 years old

Instruction for the Junior and Senior groups will be exclusively in English, meaning it is appropriate for English speaking students, but will also be suitable for students learning/practicing English by allowing them to be immersed in an English speaking environment with English speaking peers/teachers.

Due to our unique relationship with state school Jingumae Elementary, of whom we share many facilities with, we will be unable to accept applications from any children who have both Japanese parents.

We believe at JIES we are able to offer a varied and stimulating Summer Open School accommodating many different types of students of varying ages in the international community, and look forward to receiving your application.
