HFS Newsletter 2018/19 Term 1 Week 16

Posted in - Newsletter



Dear Parents


Term one has come to an end and looking back it has been quite eventful. From our inauguration at the Hanmaeum Center to our Chuseok celebration and Halloween evening, the first HFS open day and ultimately culminating in the fantastic HFS Winter Show last Monday – we have had a term full of memorable occasions and celebrations as well as the great teaching and learning in between. It has been a remarkable chapter in the HFS story and I am certain that next term will be equally memorable.


I wish to thank all of you for your support during the course of the term. A huge thank you as well to the staff that continues to keep HFS running and the students for all their hard work throughout the term. The school will close today at 12:30 pm for the Winter break. We will open again, energized and revitalised on Monday, January 7th.


A few pieces of information before we depart for the Winter break:



HFS Winter Show

A magical evening of singing, dancing, drama and laughter it was and once again thank you to all involved in making the event a massive success. Please click this link to our Facebook page for a selection of photos from the night. I would particularly like to mention Miss Yoojung Im at the Dongrami Theater for her outstanding work in putting the play together. Her work coaching and teaching the students in the Drama club really shone through and we clearly have some future performers in our midst.

Dongrami theater will be staging a separate production of Aladdin with Jeremy Philip and Cortney Dykes playing key roles. Do take the time to see them perform on Tuesday 18 December at 7:30 pm, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you to all who came to watch our final term assembly. The students really appreciate when parents take time to view their work being showcased. Well done to the students for putting on such awesome displays of your learning. Congratulations to all the recipients of the School citizenship awards and commendations. You deserve all the praise that you have received.



Term 2 Club Activities


We have all enjoyed the variety of after-school club activities during term one and I am happy to report that there will be a host of exciting, different club activities in the new term. We will have an HFS movie-making club for budding directors and cinematographers as well as an arts and crafts club for students to get their creative juices flowing. To keep active, we will have a basketball club and swimming club will continue on Tuesday afternoons. Finally, we will also have a knitting club to keep our finger nimble making scarves, gloves and hats among other things. Please sign your child up for these in the new term.



Farewell to the Lickerts

A huge thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Lickert for generously preparing that scrumptious spread for the farewell lunch yesterday. Again we wish you all the best as you return home and know that you will always have a place at HFS.


Have a wonderful winter break. Travel safe if you are travelling and may everyday be filled with adventure and delight over the holidays. I look forward to everyone returning refreshed and recharged in the new term. Happy Holidays to all and may you ring in the new year with a smile.


Best regards,



Scott Kearney
