Newsletter 2020/21 Term 1 Week 4

Posted in - Latest News

Dear Parents,

We are well into the swing of things in this first term of the 2020/21 academic year at HFS. These are the items that I would like to share with you in this week’s newsletter.

Farewell Kristian and Lina

Sadly, we have to bid farewell to Kristian and Lina Bjørkli Larsen as they leave HFS this week. We have enjoyed having them as part of the HFS community. They are both diligent students and I am sure that they will do well in the next step of their learning journey. Everyone at HFS wishes them and the Larsen family success and happiness and we would like them to know that, should they return, they will always have a place at HFS.

HFS Curriculum

I am pleased to report that, in lieu of the curriculum evening which had to be canceled due to Covid-19 concerns, we have created a link on our school website that provides an explanation of the curricula that we use at HFS. Please click here to follow the link or feel free to email your child’s teacher, should you have any questions regarding the teaching and learning that is taking place in their class.

Lunchtime Outdoor Play Resuming

With the easing off of social distancing measures from level 2.5 to level 2 in Seoul and the weather cooling to be more comfortable, I am pleased to report that we will be resuming outdoor play at lunchtime effective from Monday 21 September. I look forward to seeing the students enjoy their break outside but strict mask-wearing and distancing measures will be observed.  

HFS Chuseok Celebration on Monday 28 September

The Korean harvest moon festival of Chuseok will soon be upon us and HFS always celebrates this important National holiday. We will be having an assembly on Monday 28 September but, due to coronavirus concerns, only students and staff may attend. We will record the event and create a highlight video for parents. As always, students are encouraged to wear traditional Korean clothing or clothing from their home country on the day. I look forward to seeing the presentations that each class has been working on.

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

Mr. Keareny
