I hope that you are faring well and have had the opportunity to see the cherry blossoms in bloom.
Firstly, I am pleased to welcome a new member to the HFS team. Mr. Kevin Baker will be joining us as the ESL Teacher from next week.
Welcome, Mr. Baker. We are glad to have you at HFS.
HFS will be launching its E-Learning program on Monday 6 April at 09:00 am. Please ensure that your child is ready and logged in for class to begin as it would normally be scheduled. Also note that, while your child is participating in lessons from home, they can be seen on the computer’s camera, so do take care to ensure that they are properly clothed while doing E-Learning.
HFS will deliver materials and resources essential for learning in the silver school van to the school bus stop in the morning on 6 April, and in the afternoon on 10 and 17 April. Please be there to collect the packages. The term 3 invoices will also go out with the delivery. If you are unable to be there to collect from the bus stop, please contact the admin office to make an arrangement to collect the necessary items from the school.
I am pleased to mention that the HFS library will be open in the afternoons from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm in lieu of after-school club activities. The library will also be open during the scheduled class library periods for parents to bring students to exchange books. The times are:
- Year 1-2 Monday 2:30 – 3:30
- Year 3-4 Tuesday 1:30 – 2:30
- FS 1-2 Thursday 11:30 – 12:30
- Year 5-9 Friday 11:30 – 12:30
Please return books that you have borrowed before taking new ones.
For those who are unsure of how to navigate the Google Classroom and Google Hangout Meets platform, Miss Yujin has created a fantastic, step-by-step guide to take you through the process. You can view it by clicking here. Should you have any other technical issues please contact the admin office by email: admin@hyundaiforeignschool or phone the admin office at 052-252-2851. If that is unsuccessful in solving the issue, you are welcome to drop by the school office for further assistance or a replacement laptop or tablet will be provided.
Finally, it gives me much joy to report that the trees planted by our Global Warming Committee in Term one are thriving. A small ray of sunshine in these challenging times.
Take care, keep safe and remember to wash hands frequently and follow social distancing guidelines so that this crisis can pass sooner rather than later.
Thank you for your continued support and have a wonderful weekend.
