Two curriculums, one school

International Division -Australian Curriculum (NSW)
Japanese Division -Japanese Curriculum

Welcome to the Sydney Japanese International School

We are a bilingual, bicultural, non-denominational school situated in the leafy suburb of Terrey Hills on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney.

We invite ALL nationalities to our school to participate in a world-class education rich in Japanese culture and virtues.

We offer parents the choice between two divisions, each offering a separate curriculum: the International Division, offering the Australian curriculum from Kindergarten to Year 6, and the Japanese Division, teaching the curriculum as currently taught in Japan for Year 1 – 9. Two curriculums on one campus work towards the same vision.

Our school nurtures academic excellence, encourages active participation and fosters a culture of acceptance. From this ethos, our students emerge as empathetic, skilled and responsible citizens of the world, with fluency in two languages and the capacity to take advantage of the many opportunities this provides.

This is a much loved event in our school calendar in which Kindergarten to High School students get to enjoy a running event in our lush green campus in Terrey Hills. 子どもたちは、本番に向け、体育の時間や休み時間、放課後に練習を重ねてきました。大会当日は、緊張した様子も伺えましたが、たくさんの応援を力に、どの子も最後まで一生懸命走りました。中には、自己ベストを更新できた子やスクールレコードを破った子もいました。 The students practiced hard for the event in their PE classes, during recess and after
