Celebrating Our Move

With the move to our new campus in December only a few short months away, we aim to celebrate the historical and emotional significance of the Yamate-cho campus and the opportunities afforded to our community by our purpose-built new campus through a range of special activities and events for students, parents, staff and alumni. As plans develop, information about the events will be posted here and provided through our regular communication channels. We hope the events unite our community through their shared memories and experiences while also creating a foundation for a common and exciting future .
