We hope our community will enjoy our Annual Review. This new format continues with elements of the traditional Review, which over the years has showcased school news items as well as alumni stories and updates. These elements will remain in our Annual Review along with reports of excellence in student learning and achievement, enrollment and financial data including advancement efforts as well as sharing the accomplishments of our strategic goals as set out in our strategic plan.

This Review was emailed to our parent community earlier, but by posting here we want to ensure everyone has access to our story.

Having the Conversation about Tech Use

Last week, the CA tech team in collaboration with the counseling department launched our Family Tech Agreements interface.

Advice in current articles from experts unanimously points out the value of family tech agreements.Eduro Learning published one such article just this week. They have their own edition of family tech agreements in fact.

New Families Tech Orientation: Navigating Canadian Academy's Digital Platforms

We kindly invite all new Canadian Academy parents to our tech orientation. Depending on your child's age, Canadian Academy uses many different digital platforms to help you better understand your child's growth.

This orientation will take place on Thursday, Jan. 31, from 10:30 a.m. This is directly following our monthly PTA meeting, which will begin at 8:45 a.m. All new families are also invited to attend that meeting as well!

Please note that this is a change of date from what was previously listed on our calendar, as some new families have yet to arrive in Kobe.

Both the PTA and the Tech Orientation will be held in our Multi Purpose Room (MPR), on the first floor of our ELAC building (where the admissions office is located).

Finally, please do bring a smart phone and/or laptop to the meeting!

We are proud to report that we had great success with our Thai Village Children's Fund Campaign. In total, we raised 2,282,838 yen. My special thanks go to Mr. David Mayhew and Ms. Victoria Varona for their hard work leading the campaign. Thank you everyone for participating in the fundraiser. Without your help, we couldn't have achieved such a success. And without your kindness, many students in Thailand would not be able to continue their studies.

The Middle School raised 1,054,718 yen through all kinds of student-led activities; our Walk-a-Thon, the planter sale of Ms. Varona's G7 design class, bake sales, movies, dodgeball and many other fun games, dance and more. In addition to this, 327,000 yen was donated by MS students to sponsor Thai students individually.

I was impressed that many people came forward this year to offer individual sponsorships to Thai students. I appreciate the generous contribution of 870,000 yen made by the wider CA community (ES families, faculty, staff and alumni). Jeans' Friday raised 21,610 yen and HS SBC 9,510 yen, which made the total of the fundraiser 2,282,838 yen.

Our effort makes a great difference in the lives of Thai kids. We are not just providing scholarships to those who are unfortunate, but helping Thai children establish a system to help each other work their way out of poverty.

"Thank you so much for giving me a chance to continue my study. The only hope I have is with high education. My dream will come true and my parents can live comfortable." - a Thai student

Jeanie Vogt, the chair of the fund, expresses her gratitude to everyone who supported the fundraiser. Mr. David Mayhew and Ms. Victoria Varona are going to visit the Thai villages with nine 8th graders at the end of this month. We look forward to the news about our sponsored students.

When we donate the funds, we are not giving money but a gift of education and hope for the future.
