IB Learner Profile
Junten’s SGH program originated from the “Junten Study Abroad” program
In 1964, the year the Tokyo Olympic Games were held, the Japanese government removed the restriction on overseas traveling for Japanese, and people started freely travelling abroad. Junten immediately responded, and in the same year, Junten started providing students with financial support to go overseas to see and learn about the world. These students’ experiences are recorded in Junten’s The World Through The Eyes of Young People.
This Junten Study Aboard program forms the basis of the SGH program, and has been the foundation of the school’s “Nurture Knowledgeable Young Global Leaders” motto since 2000. In addition, Junten takes gap year student volunteers from the UK, and has developed a variety of international educational activities that are connected to the SGH program.
