Newsletter 2017/18 Term 1 Week 13

Posted in - Newsletter


Dear Parents,
 We had another great week at HFS.  If you have any questions about the contents of this newsletter, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Learning Resource Centre (LRC)
 We want to remind parents that the LRC is open after school on Monday and Thursday and from 1pm to 2pm on Wednesday.  We encourage all students to visit the LRC during these time.

“Readers are Leaders!”
 In the spirit of internationalism, we are studying where all students and staff come from.  Our goal is to celebrate both our similarities and differences.  We will be taking each child’s picture on Monday to put up on our world map.  Also, if any parents have any currency, postcards, anything really, from their country that they would like to donate to the school to help decorate our world map, please send it in with your child on Monday.  

Fun Day
 Our Fun Day was a Huge success!  Thank you to the PTA for organising this worthwhile event.



Winter Show
 Our Winter Show will be on December 6th at 6:30 pm in the Assembly Hall. All parents are encouraged to attend. 
 Parents, please make sure that your son(s)/daughter(s) prepare costumes for the winter show performance. Click the link below to see the detailed information by your child(ren)’s year group.
 More information will follow in our newsletter next Friday.
Middle School Futsal Finals at Busan International Foreign School
 On Wednesday the HFS middle school futsal team traveled to Busan for the Futsal Finals. They lost a close match against BFS in their first game. Afterwards, they rebounded with a hard fought victory against DIS 4-3. Their 1-1 record vaulted them to the quarter finals of the tournament where they lost to BIFS, the eventual tournament champions. Everyone at HFS is proud of the dedication, effort, and sportsmanship displayed by our middle school students leading up to and during the tournament. A special thank you should also go to all Year 5/6 students involved in helping our Middle School team train over the past month. 
Coding Club
 Next week will be the last week of our Y5-9 Coding Club.  Thank you to all involved.
Report Cards
 Report Cards will be distributed on December 8th and Parent–Teacher Conference will be on 13th. We will inform you the time at another date.  
 You will notice that we have changed the format of our report cards.  Teachers have now written anecdotal comments in the subject areas. We are confident you will find these reports informative.
 Families who are leaving our school are requested to provide at least seven days notice of their intended leaving date.  This give the school office time to prepare proper documents for leavers.  Please contact the school office directly with any queries at  Thank you very much in advance for your cooperation with this matter.
