The weather is slowly warming as the Winter chill fades and Spring approaches. There are a few items of news that I must share with you this week.
Farewell to Gabriel Tillier
A sad day it was on Wednesday as we bid farewell to Gabriel Tillier. I am sure the Year 1-2 class will feel that much quieter without his lively presence. We wish the Tillier family only happiness and joy as they embark for France. They have a long-standing relationship with HFS and they must know that, should they return, they will always have a place at HFS.
Valentine’s Day Bake Sale
I am so impressed with the HFS Student Council and their fundraising initiatives toward the Australian Wildfire Disaster. Today they held a bake sale for Valentine’s day to raise funds for the worthy cause. Thank you to all who participated and purchased some of the sweet treats that they made.
Updated Parent Handbook
The HFS Parent Handbook has been revised and all parents are expected to familiarize themselves with its contents. This is the guiding document for new and existing parents alike and all the procedures, protocols and rules that govern the running of the school are set forth in its pages. It will be posted permanently on the school website but please click here to access it directly.
100 Days of School
On Monday 17 February we will have reached a small but important milestone at HFS for this year. It will be the 100th day of school for the 2019/20 Academic year. The classes will fit in a few celebrations and games around the theme of “100” and I know that the FS 1–2 class has been counting the days as a build up to this significant landmark. Well done everyone! I look forward to the next 100!
PTA Meeting on Tuesday 18 February
On Tuesday 18 February at 3:35 pm we will have our next HFS PTA meeting. Please join us if you would like to be a part of this important school tradition. On the agenda will be the planning and organization of the upcoming International food share celebration. I look forward to seeing you there.
Finally, I am pleased to mention that the situation regarding the coronavirus outbreak is slowly and gradually coming under control. Hanmaeum center will be conducting a second fumigation of the building specifically targeting the coronavirus (Covid-19) on Monday 17 February at 07:00 am, starting with our school floor. That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support and do have a wonderful weekend.
