The holidays have arrived as we have reached the end of the first term of the 2019/20 academic year at HFS. I am pleased at the progress that everyone involved in the school has made in cementing our place further in its new incarnation; our roots are firmly planted and we are functioning like a well-oiled machine. There are a few items I wish to share with you in this final newsletter of the term.
Final Term Assembly and Award Winners
The final assembly was a fitting culmination of a fun yet challenging term where examples of the hard work that the students have done was put on display. Firstly, congratulations to the recipients of the academic commendations: Ezra Lee, Lisa Fatet, Seongyun Seo and Dave Gomes. Your diligence and hard work has earned your name on the HFS Wall of Honour. A further congratulation to the recipients of our HFS Citizenship Award: Aarna Patil, Gabriel Tillier, Minsuh Cherry Blossom Kim and Jeongwoo Seo. You too will have your name on our wall and I hope you continue to display these fine character traits that have earned you this award.
I was excited to see the excellent video made by our student council to promote HFS. It will be shown on our website and social media pages to spread the good name of HFS. Well Done!
The work that the students displayed clearly shows the high level of teaching and learning that is taking place at HFS. I am always impressed at how it seems to get better and better each year.
Sadly, we had to bid farewell to Erin Yun as she departs HFS this term. Erin, you have made yourself a part of the HFS family with your bubbly personality and cheerful demeanor. We wish you all the best in the next step of your journey and would like you to know that you will always have a place at HFS.
Finally, thank you to the parents who attended today’s assembly. The students always appreciate it when their parents take time out of their schedules to see the work that they have made. Without you HFS would simply cease to be. Please enjoy these pictures of the day’s proceedings.
Term 2 will commence on Monday 6 January and here is a link to the Term 2 planner. Please note that we may add or modify dates and will keep you informed of any changes that may be made.
I wish everyone a happy and blessed festive season and new year. Stay warm and if you are travelling please take care. Thank you, as always, for your continued support.
