Dear Parents

We are approaching the end of term one and preparing to welcome winter as the fall leaves fade. Thank you to all of the parents who kindly volunteered to assist at lunch breaks. Having an extra pair of eyes and hands makes a great difference to the smooth running of the cafeteria during mealtimes.


School trips

The year 1/2/3’s had a wonderful trip to Kidzania on Thursday. It is a spectacular theme park and the students made the most of their time there. They got the opportunity to have hands-on job experiences as airline pilots, beauticians, being chocolatiers, reviving patients as doctors, putting out fires as firemen and caring for animals as vets and much more. A special thank you to Mrs. Florovskiy for her assistance on the day. I look forward to seeing the work they produce from this valuable practical learning experience.

Please enjoy the photos of this fantastic trip and see our Facebook page or class web pages for more.

On Tuesday the FS1/2 and Year 1’s will have a sensory experience exploring the new park at Daewangam as well as a fun clay-making activity. They are all excited for that upcoming trip as they have been exploring their senses these last few weeks, including in this scrumptious activity baking apple-crumble.

Theo performing at Dongrami Theater

On Tuesday 13 November our own Year 4 student Theo will be performing multiple roles, including the title role, in the Dongrami Theater stage production of “The Wizard of OZ”. Well done Theo! It takes great nerve and confidence to perform on stage and we wish you the best of luck. If you would like to attend and support him, please see the flyer below. The performance starts at 7:30 pm.



Books home overnight

On Monday 12 November student workbooks from the year 1 to 9 classes will be sent home so that parents can examine the work that has been done over the course of term one. Please take this opportunity to comment on your child’s learning and progress and return the books on Tuesday so that work in them can continue.


That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support. Do have an enjoyable weekend and stay warm.

Best regards,


Scott Kearney

Dear Parents


As November comes so does the winter chill. Please take care and keep warm. Colds and sniffles are rampant so if you think your child is a little unwell please have them rest and recover at home for a day or two.


Scary Dress up Day

1 2

Thank you for your contribution and participation in our scary dress up day activities. The staff and students all had wonderfully creative costumes and a great effort was made by all to make the event as enjoyable as it was. Thank you to everyone for their generous donations to the treat packs and to the PTA for putting them together and preparing popcorn for the movie. Well done to the students for creating amazingly spooky activities for people to explore. The evening was a great success and I look forward to repeating it next year.

Fall Fun Day Postponed

With the weather rapidly growing colder and owing to such a short time for organizing it has been decided that we move the fall fun day to Spring. The warmer weather and additional time will allow for a bigger, better event. We will keep you informed regarding updates and progress.


School trips

Today the Year 4 to 9’s took a trip to Yangdong Cultural village. I’m sure it was a rewarding learning experience and we are keen to see what work they generate from attending this historical site.

On Thursday 8th November the year 1, 2, 3 students will make a trip to the Kidzania theme park in Busan.  We are all very excited to experience what it is like to perform different jobs in a real-world setting. More details will follow next week.

On Tuesday 13th November the year FS1/2 and Year 1 students will attend the new section of the park at Daewangam. Please see the class web-page for more information.


Lunchtime volunteers

We are calling on any parents who may be available between 12:30 and 1:00 pm to put their names down to be an extra set of eyes and hands during our daily lunch period. One person a day will be a great help. If you would like to volunteer, please fill your name on the calendar on the school notice board in the waiting area outside the office.


Thank you for your continued support.

Best regards,
