I would like to say thank you to the parent community for coming out and joining the children in their Chuseok celebration at school. As you may be aware, Chuseok is a traditional Korean holiday during which people visit their ancestral homes and pay respect to their parents and relatives both living and deceased. To put it another way, it is basically an occasion for people to celebrate their togetherness as a community and express their gratitude to those whom they hold dear. In that respect, we can be together in our hearts on this occasion regardless of our nationality and beliefs and say thank you to each other for what we owe to each other as a member of this global community.
I hope you all have wonderful Chuseok holidays and return to school safely on 10th October. Before I sign off, I would like to give you a reminder that the Year 1/2 class will be split into the Year 1 class taught by Ms. Sena You and the Year 1/2 class taught by Mr. Scott Kearney when the students return from holidays.
