●New School Year
The school year has gotten off to a busy start and we hope that students have settled into their new classes with ease as spring approaches. ☆ KA Calendar 2016-2017
KA celebrated the warmer weather with its annual spring event held on 21 March at Shiokaze Park in Odaiba. Though the grey sky threatened rain, the sun came out in time for the students to enjoy getting to know each other while doing a scavenger hunt, a game of Red Light, Green Light, and various sport activities. All the students who attended had a wonderful time. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next seasonal event in the winter.
●Tokyo Tech School
Tokyo Tech School is an exciting new venture being run from KA’s Toritsudaigaku campus. It offers programming courses like web design and 2D game design to both KA and KAIS EMS students. The new term starts on 19 April and ends on 2 June. The courses are for 4-6th graders as well as junior high and high school students. Click here for more details.

To ring in the festive season, we held our annual Winter Event on November 23. The students played games and watched short films as they enjoyed a hearty meal. The results of the Winter Writing Competition were also announced, giving a number of students an extra reason to smile on their way home. Congratulations to those who placed in the competition!
Winter Day Camp
KA will be hosting a series of exciting winter courses over the holiday season. Our Winter Day Camp, which runs over a period of three days, includes English, Science and Art classes. A number of the courses are already full, so act quickly to secure a spot for those that remain.
The junior high juken season is currently underway, bringing to a culmination months of hard work and dedication from both the students and juken teachers. We wish each student the very best of luck as they hone in on passing the tests for their desired schools.
Eiken in October/November
The latest round of Eiken tests took place in October. KA has introduced a new consultation system that creates a tailor-made study plan identifying students’ weaknesses and detailing exactly what they need to do to improve on them. We trust that this more streamlined approach will yield even better results in the future. Well done to all the students who passed the Eiken test – we’re very proud of you!
