I am pleased to begin by mentioning that the school has started to chug along with everybody on board, thanks to cooperation and understanding of our school community. I would appreciate your continued support to ensure that we will be able to successfully complete the rest of our journey together for the 2019-2020 academic year. This week also, I have some news to share with you.
Get Well Soon, Chris
Unfortunately, one of our Y3 students Chris Roussos sustained an injury while playing during the lunch break yesterday. Our staff immediately took him to a hospital in Busan with his mother. He had surgery last evening and is currently recovering at the hospital, where he will remain for about a week. Let us join in wishing him a speedy and complete recovery.
Mr. Kearney to Return to School next Monday 15 June
Released from hospital on 8 June, he has been recovering at home. He is in good health and ready to come back next Monday 15 June. I am confident that he will lead the school forward with full energy and stamina. I would like to thank all the staff for working closely together to pull through the challenge. I would also like to thank our ESL teacher Mr. Baker and the substitute teacher Mr. John English who have given their best to provide quality teaching for our Y3’s and 4’s, and, last but not least, our parents for their kind support and understanding.
Return of the Whole School
Our students enjoyed the first week after return of the whole school. At the Assembly on Monday, they discussed and shared thoughts on the core value “confidence”. It is great to see that our students are adjusting fast to the new normality brought on by the novel coronavirus and are learning how to work together and overcome challenges with inner confidence. We hope they will keep it up until 17 July, the final day of the current school year, and beyond.
PTA Meeting on Tuesday 16 June
Mr. Kearney would like to invite you to a PTA meeting on Tuesday 16 June at 3:35 pm. He wants to share ideas with you about items such as yearbook contribution from the PTA fund, scholastics book order and the end-of-the-year function. Your participation in the meeting would be much appreciated.
That is all for this week. Thank you for your continued support and do have a wonderful weekend.
