Newsletter 2017/18 Term 1 Week 8

Posted in - Newsletter

Dear HFS Parents,

We are already at the halfway point of Term 1, humming along in our collective journeys of teaching and learning. I am quite certain that we will complete this journey through active support and attention from the school community.

This week, I am particularly pleased to inform you that Mr. Peter McLeod, the new Principal, will commence his role as Principal of HFS from Monday, 23 October.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the stakeholders of our school community for pulling together to provide valued support for the school in the absence of the Principal.  As the school starts a new chapter with the incoming Principal, I have no doubt that you will continue to do so in the future.  

From next week, Mr. McLeod will write the school newsletter to you. Although I began writing the newsletter to you out of necessity under the prevailing circumstances, I soon came to appreciate that it was a valuable opportunity for me to connect with you.  I would like to thank you for helping me feel that way.

Here are details of events set to take place in the following weeks.


Class Photos for Y1 and Y1/2 on Monday, 30th October (Uniform Required)

With the splitting of the Year 1 and 1/2 classes and the arrival of Mr. Kearney, we will be taking class photos for the Year 1 and Year 1/2 classes on Monday, 30th October. Please make sure that your child comes to school on that day in the school uniform or brings one with them. Class teachers will let the students know which colour to wear.  This information will also be made available on their class pages.


Year 1 and Year 1/2 Trip, Thursday, 2nd November

The Year 1 and Year 1/2 classes plan to have a school trip on 2nd November. They will take a tour of Hyundai Heavy Industries and visit the Ulgi Lighthouse and the bridge at the Daewangam Park. This trip is line with the IPC unit on buildings and has been arranged for the students to have a chance to have a look at the designs of the industrial buildings and structures.


Thank you for your time and I wish you and your family a wonderful weekend.

Warm regards,


Paul ES Kim
