Posted in - Newsletter



Dear Parents
Week two has passed and everything is progressing steadily at HFS. I am happy to announce that the evacuation and lock down drills went smoothly and efficiently. Thank you to the Year 7/8/9s for preparing and conducting the excellent assembly on emergency safety procedures.


The after school clubs are in full swing and teachers and students are enjoying participating in the activities. This week HFS has a number of new initiatives and programs that we would like to establish for the benefit of our students.
Lunch Program
In participation with Hanmaeum Center Restaurant HFS is pleased to offer a lunch program for your convenience. The menu will consist of a variety of healthy, balanced and delicious lunches delivered to your children at the school. The set monthly menu will run on a recurring two-week cycle.

If you would like your child to be enrolled in the lunch program, it will require signing up for the entire month at a cost of 7,000won per meal including a juice.

The program is set to commence on October 4th and since October is shorter the cost will be 133,000won. For the program to be sustainable a minimum of 15 people must sign up every month.

The mouth-watering menu can be seen in the images below.

Lunch Program

Please follow this link to sign up for the lunch program by 13 September.

School Trip
Thank you to all parents for signing up for the school trip to the UMFF mountain film festival on Monday 10 September. It promises to be a fun-filled outing. Parents are reminded to pack a snack, lunch and water bottle and ensure that children are wearing their school uniforms as well as comfortable, closed sneakers suitable for light climbing (not sandals). The bus will depart promptly at 09:10 am from Hanmaeum Center and will return by 3:30 pm. Club Activities will go ahead as scheduled after we return.
Curriculum Evening
We will have a curriculum evening on Tuesday 11 September from 17:00 to 18:00 pm. Parents are welcome to attend to have an explanation of the curriculum by the class teachers and have any questions that you may have answered. I hope to see you there.
Drama Club

In preparation and anticipation for the upcoming Winter Show, HFS is happy to launch a Drama club for potential performers, singers, actors and dancers in our school. Auditions for the club will take place on Tuesday 11 September from 3:30 to 4:30 pm and the Drama will run as a regular club on Thursdays from 13 SeptemberPlease complete the online sign-up form here if you would like your child to participate.
Swimming Lessons
Thank you for your prompt and enthusiastic response to the notice regarding the swimming club. The slots are filling up fast but just a gentle reminder that Mr. Cha can offer beginner and intermediate swimming lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays respectively. The cost is 90,000won per month for four lessons and any interested parents should complete the sign-up form here.
School Photo’s
HFS is proud of its student body and as such we would like to update our class photo display. We will be taking Class Photo’s on Wednesday 12 SeptemberStudents are to wear their blue school uniform on that day or pack it so that they can change into it for the photo. I look forward to seeing everyone looking fantastic and ready to have their picture taken with their class and teacher.

Connecting with parents is vital for the effective running of any school and I have had a few parents respond to the call to be members of the PTA this year. We will have our first meeting on Wednesday 12 September at 3:30. If you would like to participate and be a part of this vital association, please send me an email and join us at our first meeting on Wednesday.
Best regards,

Scott Kearney
