Dear Parents,

We are in the final stages of term three of the 2018-2019 academic year and things are still charging along well at HFS. There are still a number of events and announcements of which I wish to inform you.


HFS Open Day

190618 오픈데이 포스터.웹

On Tuesday 18 June from 09:30 to 11:30 am we will have another “Open Day” at HFS. If you have been to the previous one you will know that we will have a presentation for new guests at 09:30 am, introducing our beloved school, followed by a short tour of the premises. At 10:00 am there will be snacks and refreshments in the cafeteria and discussion with Mr. Kim, and myself. From 10:30 to 11:30 you will have the chance to wander the school and join in the lessons that are underway. Invite your friends or anyone who may have an interest in HFS and take this opportunity to view the excellent inquiry-based learning that is taking place at the school. Validated parking in the Hanmaeum Center Plaza will be available. I look forward to seeing you there.


Thank You Lunch for Parents

As a token of our appreciation of your continued support throughout the year HFS will have a lunch on Wednesday 19 June from 1:15 to 2:15 pm in our cafeteria. Without your presence the school would simply cease to be and this is our way of acknowledging your commitment and dedication to HFS. Please RSVP by clicking here to state whether you will attend the lunch. I look forward to chatting with you over lunch about the year that has passed as well as what is in store for the HFS community.


HFS 2019 School Dance


I am pleased to announce that on Friday 21 June we will be having our annual HFS School dance. The event will run from 4:30 until 5:45 pm. To join in the fun will require an entrance fee of 5,000 Won which will get you a cotton candy, juice and (nut-free) cookie courtesy of the HFS PTA. Put on your dancing shoes and show off your moves as we dress-up and dance, play games and have fun to celebrate making it through 2018/19! It’s always a good time at HFS!


Dongrami Theater Productions

It always pleases me to see our HFS students doing well in extra-curricular activities outside of their regular school life. We have 2 students participating in upcoming productions that you may wish to see. Our F1 student, Jisika Philip will have a role in “Aladdin and the Magic Lamp” on Tuesday 25 June at 7:30 pm and our Y2/3 student, Cortney Dykes and Seongyun Seo, will play a part in the production of “The Wizard of Oz” on Friday 28 June at 7:30 pm. Please take the time to go and watch them perform. Admission is free and you merely need to contact the theater at 052-258-1248 to book a seat. If you would like to flex your acting chops the theater is also looking for an actor/actress who is interested in being a member of The Wizard of OZ team that meets every Wednesday.


Ulsan Hyundai Football Club Escorts

Hello sports fans! Everything is underway for the those of you who signed up to have your child be an escort for the Ulsan Hyundai Football Club players or to view the match from the select seats. Thank you to all for collecting your uniforms and this is just a friendly reminder that the bus will depart from the Hanmaeum Center parking lot at 5:00 pm. Tickets will be issued on the bus. It will be a fun and enjoyable experience; it is not mandatory but we encourage people to wear blue as a sign of support. Go Tigers!


HFS 2018/19 Yearbook

This is just a gentle reminder to place your orders for our 2018/19 HFS School Yearbook at the admin office by Tuesday 18 June. The cost for the first copy is 15,000 Won thanks to the kind sponsorship of the PTA. Each additional copy will be 35,000 Won. The student council and a number of individual staff have been working hard at putting together this treasure trove of the memories of this year at HFS and It is a worthwhile investment.


That is all for this week, thank you for your continued support and do have a good weekend.


Mr. Kearney
