Dear Parents,


Firstly, a huge thank you to the parents who attended the lunch on Wednesday. It was a small gesture to show our appreciation for those without whom HFS would simply not exist. It was wonderful to see and chat with you all and I’m glad you got a sneak peek at the fantastic Yearbook that we will release next week. There are few important announcements this week of which you should be made aware. Firstly, a gentle reminder that there will be no club activities during the final week of school. Classes will end at 3:30 pm next week and the school bus will run as normal. (Violin and Swimming Club will go on next week.) On Tuesday 25 June school tuition fee invoices for term 1 will be sent home with your child. Please be sure to look out for them if this pertains to you.



HFS 2019 School Dance Festivities

What a party it was. I hope you had as much fun as I had. It was awesome to see our students cutting loose and tearing up the dance floor. Who knew they could move like that. The games were fun too. Well done to all the dancers for showing us their hula and limbo skills. Thank you to everyone for all your hard work in putting it together. I hope we can top this event next year.



Reports and Books Sent Home Overnight


Today you will have received the term 3 progress report with your child. I am sure that our students performed exceptionally as they usually do. Please peruse the reports at length and bring any compliments or concerns to the parent teacher conferences next week. Please also complete the parents’ section at the end and bring that with you to the meeting. On Monday you will have the chance to view the work your child has been doing at school as English, Math and Science books go home overnight. Please return them on Tuesday so that class work may continue.



Parent Teacher Conferences


On Wednesday 26 June we will have our termly parent teacher conferences. The interviews will be scheduled for during the day, starting at 11:30 for the year 2/3 class and will run until 4:30 pm. Please fill your name on the interview sheet at the admin office to secure your interview slot. It is important to take this opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss their progress and any concerns you may have as they enter the next leg of their learning journey. I look forward to seeing you there.



PTA Pizza and Movie Day


On Thursday 27 June the PTA will treat the students to a Pizza lunch and movie afternoon. Aren’t they lucky! The students will gather as per usual for lunch in the cafeteria but our wonderful PTA has generously provided pizza, gimbap, and fruit for the students to enjoy as we celebrate the 2018/19 academic year coming to a close. After lunch the students will gather in the library to enjoy a “mystery” movie and refreshments to cap off a year of hard work. It will be fun afternoon.



Final Assembly on Friday 28 June


Our 2018/19 academic year will officially come to an end on Friday 28 June. It will be a full day running until 3:30 pm. The assembly will commence at 1:40 pm, join us for the commendation and citizenship awards presentation and a showcasing of selections of work that the students have completed during this term. It will be a fine send off to what has been a magical year at HFS.



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


Mr. Kearney
