Welcome to our School
Masamichi Miura
SJIS Principal

Our school embraces students from diverse cultural backgrounds and provides an opportunity to educate and enrich children with quality education and a global vision.

We pride ourselves on a high level of academic and social education for students while also teaching respect and integrity through strong social and global developmental programs.  SJIS fosters a positive atmosphere that will encourage all students’ intellectual and emotional growth.

The school offers two education streams  with the Japanese Division following the Japanese government curriculum and the International Division studying the Australian curriculum. Studying the Japanese government curriculum helps children who are eventually returning to Japan.

Learning the Japanese language is also essential for children who need to speak Japanese through their lives. On the other hand, having a Japanese language lesson per day alongside the Australian curriculum is a positive option for those living in Australia permanently. SJIS is a school that provides these unequalled options and exceptional opportunities plus the unique international environment within the school.

Please feel welcome to visit our school and see the quality of education on offer at SJIS.

Yours faithfully,
Masamichi Miura

Allan Meadows
SJIS Deputy Principal

Students enrolled in the International Division receive a quality and rounded education, studying the Australian curriculum which not only caters for all the required Key Learning Areas, but we also add a quality and highly effective second language development in an ideal learning environment.

The language proficiency attained in primary school here provides a real and enduring language base, which enables the students to become bilingual. The academic focus also leads students successfully to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

Understanding culture is often seen as going hand in hand with additional language learning, and SJIS provides this authentic and very tangible aspect to our students, as they experience friendships through carefully planned and shared learning activities, as well as a number of festivals and events throughout the year.

I would like to welcome any interested families to come to our campus. Indeed we have a beautiful environment, wonderful space and facilities, a committed and caring parent community, and a school year full of exciting school events for our students. What we are aiming to create is the optimal learning environment with a balanced focus, to ensure excellence in academic, social and language development areas.

Yours faithfully,

Allan Meadows
