Newsletter 2017/18 Term 1 Week 7

Posted in - Newsletter

Dear HFS Parents,

The change of season brings with it pleasant and comfortable weather with less humidity. Autumn has traditionally been described in Korea both as a season of bountiful harvest and as the one more favorable to “drawing near to the study lamp.” I hope that our students get the maximum benefit out of the good weather by engaging more in the outdoor activities and applying themselves to their studies.

I have fantastic news to deliver to the school community as well as a couple of reminders for the following week.


Appointment of the New Principal

I am pleased to inform you that we have appointed the new Principal, Mr. Peter McLeod, and he is likely to arrive at the school within the next couple of weeks. All his documents were submitted to the immigration office prior to the Chuseok break and his visa is in process. Mr. Peter McLeod is a highly experienced educational expert from Canada with 20 years’ leadership experience. He is certain to be a valuable asset to the school with his extensive experience and knowledge and I would appreciate your valued support for him to succeed in his endeavor. He will make a formal introduction upon his arrival.


First PTA Meeting on Tuesday, 17th October at 2 pm

During the last term of the 2017/18 academic year, the PTA passed the torch to the new PTA and Mrs. Brony Pevreal took on the role as the new Chair. She wants to have the first PTA meeting on next Tuesday, 17th October at 2 pm at the Banquet Room of the Compound Clubhouse. I am aware that Mrs. Pevreal is currently inviting new members to join the PTA. The school welcomes and appreciates active and constructive engagement from the parent community and in this regard, it would be our pleasure to see many parents come out and attend this first meeting of the PTA in the new academic year. I am attaching her message below.

PTA MEETING, Banquet room, Clubhouse

We would like to invite all parents who are interested in coming and joining the HFS PTA to our first meeting of the year.

The PTA last year held many events like the Fall Festival, International Food Day, Spring Bonanza, Yearbook and Scholastic Book orders, fun days at school and pizza lunches….

We welcome anyone to join, and are keen to have new fun events, if you have ideas we would love to hear them.

We had a great meeting at the end of the last school year, this was very promising and we had a great response from parents. If you are still keen to join, we would love to have you on the team.

Please consider coming to the meeting and volunteering your time to make fun events happen for your kiddos. 🙂

We hope to see you next Tuesday!

Please feel free to bring preschoolers, they are more than welcome!

If you have any questions about the meeting please feel free to ring Brony on 010 2810 4420 or email


Futsal Tournament at Daegu International School, Thursday, 19th October 2017

The HFS football club will be participating in a futsal tournament to be held at Daegu International School on Thursday, 19th October. Mr. McCrimmon will take our students to and from the venue on that day and the bus will leave from the school at 07:00 am. I would like to ask the parents whose child has signed up for the event to make sure that he/she comes to the school on time.


Thank you for your time and I hope you have a restful weekend.

Warm regards,
