All donations will be gratefully appreciated
so we can build a bridge to the future

The last three years have seen a revitalisation of the School’s facilities as well as other upgrade initiatives. High speed internet has enabled children to use Google Chromebooks in the classroom for learning, but there is still a lot to do and we need your support. Important equipment, such as the grand piano, is getting worn out and tired and needs replacing. We need to create the very best educational environment to enhance and support the upcoming 2020 MEXT curriculum change. Any donations will be helpful and will go towards these future building projects.

Message from our alumni

My SJIS pride – My hope for SJIS for the next 50 years!

by Akihiro Sakakibara, our first graduate in 1970

I came back to visit my school, SJIS in September 2018. I was amazed at how much the school has developed over the last 50 years! The school building is now a wonderful building, and there is a spacious oval that was not there when I was at the school. I am so proud to be a SJIS graduate and I hope from the bottom of my heart that the school will continue to develop and grow for the next 50 years!
I am honored that SJIS continues to foster a real appreciation of the Australian, Japanese and other cultures, making it a truly international environment. I would like to pass the baton to the future SJIS graduates to go out and interact with the global society with an Australian heart and the Japanese harmony that they have learnt during their time at SJIS.
On behalf of nine of my class mates and their families who visited this time, I would like to thank you again.

– Our first graduates in 1970 as Year 6, Japanese Division – Sayako Sakai (Akiyama), Akihiro Sakakibara

– Our second graduates of High School Division in 1973 as Year 9 – Kayoko Nakamura (Ohno), Kenji Cleveland, Chiaki Kawai (Tadokoro), Tomokazu Teshima, Yoshiko Akiba (Nishizawa), Junko Nakano (Fukui), Mariko Muto (Murata)

We thank you for your support and help all these years
