Dear Parents


I hope you had a delightful Seollal break. The weather is slowly warming as winter wanes and spring inches closer. There are quite a few announcements I would like to share even though it has been a short week.

The students enjoyed an eye-opening trip to the Hyundai Art gallery to see the exhibition on Graffiti art. It is important to expose children to different forms of art and, in this case, ensure they understand the difference between damaging property and making a creative statement. I look forward to seeing the creative output that the students produce as a result of this trip.


Valentine’s Day Bake Sale

Cookies spelling bake sale

Valentine’s Day has long been celebrated as a day of expressing affection between people. At HFS we want to acknowledge the day with a bake sale organized by Ms. McClellan and the HFS Student Council. There will be sweet goodies on sale at lunchtime so be sure to send a few thousand Won with your child on Thursday, February 14th so that they may purchase a sweet treat for themselves or a special someone. All proceeds will go to the WeHope Charity. If you would like to bake some cookies or cupcakes to sell on the day, please feel free to do so and contact Ms. McClellan to inform her of what you will make and in what quantity.


Scholastic Book Club Orders


Scholastic offers a vast range of books to enthrall children of any age and if you would like to take advantage of the discounts they offer please visit the website http://world-schools.scholastic.co.uk/hyundai-foreign and see what is available. Please complete your online orders by no later than Sunday, February 10th. The orders will then be delivered to the school and distributed to parents accordingly. At HFS we firmly believe “readers are leaders” so do take advantage of this outstanding bargain.


Year 2-9 trip to Busan National Science Museum and Planetarium


Science is fun. Science is curiosity. We all have natural curiosity. Science is a process of investigating. It’s posing questions and coming up with a method to answer them. At HFS we take every opportunity to allow our students to experience and see the value of what they are learning applied to the real world and as part of their learning units on the solar system, forces and electricity, the year 2 to 9 students will have a trip to the Busan National Science Museum and Planetarium on Thursday 21st February. It will be a full-day trip, returning by 3:30 pm but after-school activities will not be affected and will run as per normal on the day. Please indicate if you will allow your child to be a part of this valuable learning experience by clicking on the online permission form here.

That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support and have a wonderful weekend.


Best Regards,



Scott Kearney
