Play is an important part of an OCSI education!


  • Because play helps our students stay healthy.
  • Because play helps our students practice teamwork and develop character.
  • Because play helps our students think strategically and exercise their imaginations.

At OCSI, we give our students opportunities to play—before school, through physical education, and during recess, lunch, and sports. And we don’t just want our students to play; we also want them to play safely.

From September 2016 through February 2017, Yomitan is connecting the road by Sera-en to the main road above OCSI.

This means there will be a new public road on the far side of our playing field. Because the impact of this new road, we are going to promote playing safely in a variety of ways, including…

Help us play safely and cover the estimated costs of ¥7 million ($70,000) by…

  • Giving a gift to our PlaySafely Campaign in Japan or the US.
  • Praying for God to provide needed funds and safety as our students play.

Together, let’s help OCSI students play safely!


Where is the new road going to go?

It will go from Sera-en, along the backside of the playing, past the staff apartments, and up to the Zanpa Chuo Road.

Where will the poles and netting go to stop balls from going onto the new road?

At the far end of the playing field by the staff apartments. 

How will the new road affect the back entrance?

We anticipate more traffic on the new road, and we will monitor the effects of this.

Why does OCSI want to extend the fence by the elementary playground?

So that soccer balls and basketballs don’t go rolling out onto the driveway.
