On July 1, 2015, Saint Louis School enters a new era of leadership. Dr. Glenn Medeiros brings his wealth of experience as an educator and administrator to the students and faculty of Kalaepohaku. Together with Principal Sione Thompson, Dr. Medeiros will continue the excellent work of retired Head of School Hon. Walter Kirimitsu. He looks forward to a bright future for the Crusader Ohana.
Saint Louis will be one of two schools representing our state at this summer's Japan-America Society of Hawaii’s Peace Symposium in the two sister cities of Nagaoka and Honolulu to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Four Crusaders will serve as official peace ambassadors at symposium events in both countries: Daniel Cho ’16, Gino Dawiczyk ’17, Quinton Matsuo-Chun ’16, and Michael Murakami ’16.
Forty-six Japanese sophomores and four teachers are geared up for the 40th Hawaii Summer English Program on the Kalaepohaku campus, July 20 – August 1. Enthusiastic Japanese students experience Hawaiian culture and English language skills, while Hawaii students enjoy expanding their roles in the global community.
Saint Louis School has hired experienced coach and educator Mark Kane as varsity soccer coach and program coordinator.
Kirimitsu will leave a significant mark on Hawaii’s oldest Catholic school after nine years as its head administrator when he leaves his office at the end of next month.
He will step away from his 24/7 job at the school into a more relaxed routine of community work using his skills as a lawyer and former judge.
