To become a Child of St.Mary

“To become a Child of St.Mary” means that students will learn from the Virgin Mary’s way of living based upon the spirit of Christianity so that they can shine in society by taking advantage of their individuality and skills.

Five “Shining” elements for a Child of St.Mary

Spirit of Service/Heart of Compassion

Students will learn the spirit of Christian love through religious classes and religious events. They will pray for others and be mindful of others.

Successful Relationships

There are two 25-students classes in one grade. Students from different grades will form groups to conduct some activities together. Through these activities, students will interact with different age groups and develop successful relationships and communication skills.

Respectable Lifestyle

Students will learn appropriate manners and develop social skills in an orderly group living environment. The group will give students the opportunity to reflect on their own behaviour.

True Knowledge

There is a curriculum for each subject: Japanese, Math, Science, Social studies, Physical Education, English, Music, Arts and Crafts, Home economics, and Religion. This curriculum will match the level of each grade and students will learn practical knowledge that can be utilized in their real life.

Critical thinking

Students will learn proactively through their classes and school activities. They will be able to develop their ability to think critically through pair and group work experiences.

Catholic Education

Religious education based on the Catholic teachings is the backbone of our school education from primary school through junior and senior high school for 12 years. In primary school education, we focus on the following elements.
Firstly, students will learn that humans exist by God’s love. From this love, they will learn to respect each other and build successful relationships. Secondly, we help students to become independent adults who can make choices and be responsible.
We strive to cultivate these two elements in students based upon the life philosophy of Christianity through all primary school activities.
In daily school life, students will respect the diversity of individuals, learn how to interact with others, and value prayer as emotional support. [Celebration of the Virgin Mary]
