Penang Japanese Saturday school opened its door in January 2012. The school is a NPO run by volunteers.
In July 2013, we were successfully registered with the Registry of Society (ROS) in Malaysia. Our ultimate goal is to get an approval and funds from the Japanese Ministry of Education.
Our teachers are experienced retired school teachers who live in Penang on MM2H, or expatriate wives or those who are married to Malaysian, most of those have worked as a teacher in Japan. In addition, we have volunteer teaching assistants (TA). All of them are willing to help and support our children and school.
We conduct 3 sessions of 45 minute literacy class every Saturday, 40 days a year. In January 2015, we started Maths classes, and we are also planning to open a Japanese class for non-Japanese primary school children in early 2015.
