After School Program
Please check details about ASP for external students here!
How ASP works
Our After School Program (ASP) at Aoba provides a series of engaging activities every weekday after school between 15:45 and 17:15 that:
- Continues to help our young people learn through thought and action.
- Continues to help develop communication in English and collaboration with others.
- Develops leadership, creativity, empathy and fair play.
ASP also offers the chance for our young people to develop the attributes that align with our core values:
Global Leadership: Opportunities to develop responsibility, understand how to be a good leader and also a good supporter, and develop commitment and empathy.
Entrepreneurship and Innovation: A context in which to apply skills, think differently about what we do, make suggestions and follow through.
Effective Problem Solving: Sharing in developing a great activity; considering the issues within our activities.
Effective Communication: Further develop English skills and other forms of communication in a variety of contexts.
Wise Risk-Taking: Trying new activities and new experiences within those activities.
ASP Coordinator—Shoko Endo
I’m Shoko. I’ve been at Aoba for almost a quarter century. Leaving my position as a teacher, I will be planning and managing ASP, as well as planning and managing events for the entire school. My long years in the classroom will hopefully be beneficial in planning meaningful ASP programs, trips, and events that are linked to our Core Values.
Athletics Director—Nicolas Dhuez
As the athletics director (AD), I oversee all aspects of our athletics program, including scheduling, budget preparation, promotion, compliance, and facility use. The AD collaborates with other ADs and coaches in leagues about scheduling issues as well. We also speak with league officials about subjects such as setting and adapting league rules.
