Twice a year, the Foreign Buyers Club holds a benefit for international schools in Japan. Anyone placing an order during this time can designate TIS as the beneficiary to a 5% rebate of the order, even if they live in a different part of Japan. Other schools may have different weeks they have chosen for their benefit orders, and so if you are ordering at different times and can find out when some other school is having their benefit, you can even designate that school for the 5%.
If you are an FBC member and want your order delivered directly to your home, you can place your order directly, and as long as you send it in during that week and write Tsukuba International School on the order form, TIS still gets the 5% rebate. If you are not a member or simply want to share the shipping cost with others (it's only 500 yen when the order total is over 50,000 yen and is being shipped to one place), then you can submit your order to the schol or to Tim Boyle. The items will arive in early April.
The catalogs used in the fall order are still valid, though an update is being issued. A few catalogs are still available and can be picked up either at the school or at the Tsukuba Christian Center. For further information, call Tim Boyle at 55-1907.
