Dear Parents,

Another super week at school for students and staff.  We have been busy enjoying the festivities surrounding the end of the school year. 

 

SKAK Track and Field Carnival

On Tuesday, the Year 4-9 students participated in the annual Track and Field Carnival organized by the South Korean Activities Conference.  We were lucky to have the privilege of competing within a full-sized stadium, and the students were all in awe as we entered the venue. 

HFS placed first in six events, three of which went to our future Olympian, Srinika. Om placed first in the 200m and surprised everyone by dominating in the long jump.  Jin Myeong won the vortex throw!  Lucas celebrated his birthday by placing second in the 1000; while competing against older students!  Alicia, Ethan, Daphne and Dina also placed in their events.  A special thanks goes out to our honorary coaches, Hayun and Mackenzie, who coached and organized the students throughout the day.

Mr. McCrimmon is proud of the HFS students that attended because of their overall effort, and how well they composed themselves.  Please enjoy the photos courtesy of Mr. Munden.  

Track and Field Carnival

 

Beach Clean Up

We had a great morning at Ilsan Beach on Thursday.  The entire school went to the beach with bags to pick up trash.  We did some sport in the sand and put our feet in the water to cool off!

Then we went for Ice Cream at the Moby Dick Cafe, which everyone enjoyed.  We would like to thank the PTA for sponsoring our tasty ice cream.  We would also like to thank the parents who joined us.  I believe they enjoyed it, as well.

Election Day

There will be no school on Wednesday, June 13th, as it is an election day.  Have a super day.

As part of our IMYC units on traditions the Year 7/8/9 the students have been thinking about the traditions behind the way a school year is organised.  They then looked at different ways they could structure a year in school and came up with some very interesting ideas and insights.

PTA 2018-2019

We cannot stress enough the importance of having a PTA in a school.  When you have a strong PTA, good things happen for the students in a school.  We are coming to the end of an era at HFS.  We are all moving from the compound, many are going home and the school site is moving to the Hanmaeum Center temporarily next year.  This is the exact time for all of us to pull together and ensure that the PTA continues at HFS.  The final PTA meeting of the year will be Tuesday, June 5th at 9am.  We urge all parents to come so we can brainstorm how we can organize the PTA for next year.

See you there!

 

Best Wishes,
