COUNTRY OF PARTICIPANT:

During the early 19th century, the Hungarians and Germans emended the words present in a letter from Lucius Annaeus Seneca (4 BC – 65 AD). The altered form, “non scholae sed vitae discimus", means "we do not learn for school, but for life", and is used as motto by numerous schools around the globe.
To live up with this motto, we hold a firm standpoint that education itself does not necessarily have to be presented solely in traditional approaches. Experience gained from face-to-face classroom sessions can still be augmented by other methods, because students must always feel excited by, and be open to, the process of education.

In order to achieve this methods that consistently stimulate students’ interest in learning processes need to be employed. This has led us into thinking about methods on how we may engage students in education beyond the classroom.
Through these methods, we aim to:
  • Enable students to experience joy of learning
  • Boost students’ confidence and allow make them feel proud of their achievements
  • Equip students not only with intellectual skills, but also emotional and morality skills
  • Develop students’ scientific mind and mathematical logic
By God’s grace, all the effort involved in this thought process has come to bear fruit that is Japan International Science and Mathematics Olympiads.
