Newsletter 2017/18 Term 1 Week 9

Posted in - Newsletter


Dear HSF Parents,

It has been a real pleasure joining the Hyundai Foreign School family this week as the new Principal. I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome I have received from parents, teachers and students. So you are aware, I am Canadian and I have spent the last 20 years working in international schools around the globe.  I am pleased that the students at HSF seem engaged in their learning and are well on their way to becoming enlightened and passionate global citizens.

I have an, “Open Door Policy,” and I welcome parents, staff and students to see me anytime if they have questions or concerns. I am confident that with hard work and cooperation between the school and home, our students will enjoy the success they deserve. 

Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding the contents of this newsletter. 


Class Photos Monday, October 30th

Year One and Two photos will take place on Monday, October 30th. We ask that Ms. You’s class wear red tops and Mr. Kearney’s class wear blue tops. 


We are all looking forward to an exciting Dress Up Day on Tuesday.  All children and staff have the option of dressing in their choice of costume for the day.  This is a chance for students to use their imagination and be creative.  Each class will have the opportunity to parade through the various classes and offices in the school to display their unique costumes.  At 11:45am, the entire school will parade through the compound and in the surrounding community to celebrate our special day.  Following the parade, there will be a picnic outside with games for everyone! Parents are welcome to parade with us and dress up, as well.

We look forward to seeing you all there.


Coffee with the Principal, Wednesday, November 1st

After parents drop off their children on Wednesday, parents are welcome to come and meet the Principal for a drink and snack.  Coffee and tea will be served in the playground at 9:15am.  All parents are welcome to join us!


Library Volunteers

Parents interested in volunteering in the library are asked to meet Ms. Gang and the Principal in the library on Thursday at 3:40 pm for an organizational meeting.  We are excited about having parents being more involved in our library.  Remember……. Readers are Leaders!


Dogs on Campus

It has come to our attention that some dogs are being walked on school grounds after school hours.  We have had students slip and fall in, “Dog Mess,” which has resulted in tears and hurt feelings.  Please, we ask that dogs are walked off campus to avoid this from happening to our students.  Thank you for you for your cooperation in this matter.


We are all excited about the upcoming week.  Please ensure that you read with your child each evening! 


Best Wishes,


Peter McLeod
