Study Abroad in New Zealand (3weeks)
Mandatory curriculum for all students!
Our G5 students go to New Zealand for a 3-week study abroad experience every February.
They will stay with a host family and go to school in Thames, a small town about an hour away from Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand. Students will spend three weeks immersed in a live English environment, interacting with nature and experiencing different cultures.
Since they have to take care of themselves, they grow up mentally and come back to Japan with an independent look on their faces.
The elementary schools in Thames have a special focus on Maori language education, making the environment almost bilingual. The students who have returned to Japan will perform Maori songs and dances for the whole class.
