The annual Korean Chuseok harvest moon festival is upon us. It is an important tradition and a time to celebrate with family and loved ones. These are the items of news that I wish to share with you this week.
HFS Chuseok Celebration on Monday 28 September
HFS will have a restrained Chuseok program this year due to Covid-19 Concerns. We will have a live-streamed communication and Korean martial arts demonstration with the UNESCO Martial Arts Center followed by the individual class presentations after which the whole school will proceed to the gymnasium to enjoy traditional Korean activities. I am glad that we can celebrate this important cultural holiday albeit in a more subdued way. We will record the proceedings and share the highlights on the school website.
School Closed from 30 September to 9 October for the Autumn Break
HFS will be closed from Wednesday 30 September for the Autumn, mid-term break, and classes will resume on Monday 12 October. If you are planning to travel during this break please observe all proper Covid-19 protocols and try to avoid crowded places as much as possible. I would like to remind all parents to note that if your child or any family members do show any signs or symptoms of Covid-19 or need to take the test during the break, please email the admin office first before you take them to the screening center so that we can take the necessary action promptly.
PTA Meeting on Tuesday 13 October
Upon returning from the break, we will have the next PTA meeting on Tuesday 13 October at 3:35 pm. The PTA is a valued and important institution at any school and I look forward to seeing you there.
That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support and I would like to wish everyone a happy and festive Chuseok. Pungsunghan Hangawi Bonaiseyo (풍성한 한가위 보내세요).
