Japanese Schools – Official Facebook Page
CAIRO – 28 August 2017: Egyptian Japanese schools will open ten days after the start of the academic year in public and private schools, said the Minister of Education and Technical Education Tarek Galal Shawky during an interview on ‘Yahdoth Fe Masr ‘ (Happening in Egypt) show hosted by Sherif Amer on Sunday.
Egyptian Japanese schools aim to improve students’ education, emphasize values, moral principles and positive behaviors, promote national affiliation, instill the spirit of cooperation, teamwork and problem solving and create a solid learning environment.
This is one of the most important experiences applied by the Ministry to enhance the education system, Shawky said, explaining that the model aims to build children’s personalities , establish a balanced social development, emotional and academic aspects and raising the education level.
During a visit to Japan early last year, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and announced a partnership in education, based upon applying the Tokkatsu Japanese education model, which is a blend of class, club and pupils' council activities and school events.
The Ministry has sent delegations to Japan to be trained on Japanese educational curriculum, added Shawki noting that the Ministry seeks to open 28 Japanese schools in Egypt with a different educational system, study hours and activities. The number of students in each class of the Japanese schools will not exceed 25.
Amr Abdel Monem who chairs the Egyptian-Japanese schools unit at the Egyptian Education Ministry stated that the tuition fees would range from EGP 2,000 ($113.7) and EGP 4,000.
