Dear Parents,

We are rapidly approaching the half way mark of term 1 at HFS and we can see the Autumn leaves turning. I do hope you can find a place to enjoy the warm Fall colors of the season. There are a few items of news that I wish to share with you this week.



HFS Winter Show Solo Performances – Call for Participants

As per tradition, HFS will have its Winter Show in December at the end of term 1. I am pleased that students have been approaching me with requests to perform solo musical acts as part of the show. I have decided to make an open call to any students who wish to perform a musical number in the winter show. If you have been practicing an instrument and feel confident enough to perform a short 2-minute item in the show, please send an email and a video of you performing your piece to by no later than Friday 25 October. We will judge if it is appropriate to be included. I look forward to seeing your entries.



HFS Winter Uniforms Sent Home Today

I am pleased to report that the newly created HFS Winter uniforms were delivered and sent home today. Please check and make sure that you received the correct sizes. The uniform was designed to be both practical and stylish and can be worn from Monday if you feel the weather requires it. I am happy that the students can now be warm and comfortable in Winter while proudly wearing the HFS colours.



HFS Scary Dress-up Day Friday 25 October


On Friday 25 October we will have our annual Scary Dress-up Day. Students are encouraged to dress up on the day and each class will vote for the best costume. Parents are welcome to attend our class activities from 1:30 to 3:00 pm and that will be followed by a final school vote on who has the best costume so get creative in your spooky designs. Volunteers are also welcome to help to decorate our hall and library from 10:30 am to make the event special. I look forward to seeing you there.



No Sharing Food Policy at HFS
no food sharing

It has been brought to my attention that students have been sharing candy with each other. As you may be aware, this particular brand of candy is popular but we do have a policy of not sharing food at HFS. Passing bits of candy from hand to hand may cause sickness and we are concerned that with some of the students taking medication due to cold at the school these days, this kind of act can spread germs among the rest of the student body.  Let’s practice good health and hygiene at HFS.



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



Mr. Kearney
