Dear Parents

I hope everyone enjoyed a restful and relaxing summer break.

I am pleased to send this first welcoming message from Hyundai Foreign School as school coordinator and as it enters its exciting, new incarnation at the Hanmaeum community center. I am happy to say that the move from the foreigner’s compound went smoothly. The school will be ready for the upcoming academic year which will start on Monday August 27th.

New staff members
I am also happy to announce that HFS has a number of new staff members joining the faculty. Ms. Marie McClellan will manage the FS1, FS2 and Year 1 class. I, (Mr. Scott Kearney) will manage the year 2 and 3 class and function as the school coordinator, Mr. David Gaffney will be in charge of the year 4, 5 and 6 class and Mr. Nathan Dunn will manage the year 7, 8, 9 class. We are proud to welcome such a diverse and experienced group of teachers to the HFS team.

Thank you for your cooperation.

HFS Open Day
We will have an open day on the morning of Saturday 25 August for all parents and children. This is an opportunity for you to view the facilities, meet the staff and answer any questions that you might have. 09:00 am to 10:00 am will be an induction for new students. At 10:00 am we will have a welcome message followed by a tour of the new premises, after which guests are welcome to explore the school grounds and have a chat with the teachers and staff while enjoying some refreshments. I look forward to seeing you all there.

I am confident that this will be a dynamic and exciting chapter in the HFS story.

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone is enjoying a restful holiday with family and friends.
I want to inform you that I have taken another position and will not be returning as the HFS principal.  I have been appointed as the “School Consultant,” which means I will be available to HFS staff for advice, if they need it.
I plan to come to school once a term during this transition year on a Saturday to meet with staff and hopefully parents.
I am pleased to announce that Mr. Scott Kearney has been appointed as the, “School Coordinator.”  I am confident that with Paul Kim, Mrs. Yeo, Ms. Yujin, Mr. Kearney and the new staff working as a team, it will be another successful school year.
I want to thank all the parents for their support.  
I wish you all the best.
Parents should take note that the phone number of the school office is now 052-252-2851.
