Niseko Seasonal School English
Learn and Communicate in English
Learn amidst the natural beauty of NISEKO!
Created by members of our experienced Hokkaido International School staff, participants receive the best possible instruction from highly qualified teachers, supported by a dedicated summer staff that place students first.
Taught in English, this program provides students from around Asia with the opportunity to experience independent and creative thinking skills alongside outdoor physical education activities.
This school is aimed for children of Western and Asian education systems who wish to come to Niseko to enjoy the beautiful setting, study in English. A native English speaking teacher will present a fun and active learning environment for you – a perfect chance to have fun, think and learn at the same time.
Hokkaido International School Niseko has created this program for short term summer learners. This educational experience is usually only available to full-time students at international schools. Thus, we are pleased to provide this course for learners who have a keen interest in English whether they have learnt just a little or if they have lived abroad.
Students at Seasonal School will become efficient and productive in independent study through development of executive functions. Students will analyze their learning spaces, create an organized study plan that minimizes distractions, and converse ways to set and reach realistic learning goals. …..
The HIS Seasonal School runs over 4 weeks and each week is an independent learning module. The students will have an immersion experience and learn English communication through speaking and writing English.
Niseko is a world class ski haven. HIS Niseko promotes skiing throughout the winter months. During the summer months, skiers focus on “dry land” training to enhance their skiing techniques. Dry land training is essentially body awareness. Efficiency is what we promote on a physical level, but also as a training program.
Exercise improves learning in three ways:
- Exercise increases oxygen flow into the brain,
- Exercise increases neurons’ creation and survival.
- Exercise decreases damage from stress.
One goal is to identify body alignment and postural deficiencies with an open and clear mind. Acceptance as to where we are is a key to smart training. Giving the kids tools to identify areas that might need improvement in their own time. We want the kids to be able to create personal training programs.
We next move into exercises that promote a whole-body approach. We will educate the kids as to how and why people exercise. Our program intends to educate as much as it does to get kids moving. We focus exercising correctly.
Next we are devoted to play. Students can know that the work they have done up to this point will carry over into how they move in any task for the rest of the session without thinking about it. Training properly is essentially fun. Tasks will include team sports, running, hiking, and biking.
