HFS Newsletter – Term 1 – Week -1

Posted in - Latest News

Welcome Back

Hello HFS community!

I hope you have all had an enjoyable summer holiday and are ready for school to start again soon.

There will be a full newsletter next Friday but I just thought I would give you a few reminders and bits of information to help school get started smoothly.

First Day of School

The first day of school for all students is Thursday 19th August. The students will have two days of activities to help them get accustomed to their new classes and school routines. Here is a link to the school calendar for this year so you can see all the upcoming dates.

Contact Forms

Please take a moment to fill in a Contact Form. It is very important that the school has up-to-date information and some of your details may have changed. We would like to ask all parents, even parents of returning students to fill out a form.


We are still finalizing the details of the bus and will publish a bus timetable early next week.


As you are probably very well aware, COVID-19 remains an issue we have to be very aware of at school.

If you have any contact with COVID-19 or any issues that may affect the school please get in touch. We are able to advise you confidentially of the appropriate procedure and government guidelines. Here is a link to the school’s COVID-19 Protocol.

Next Week

Monday 16th August is a national holiday but staff will be in school and the Admin Office will be open from Tuesday if you need to come and see us. We are always happy to see you.

Class Posts

Keep an eye out next week for a welcome post from your new teacher of their class page some time early next week. We will be having an open-day early in Term 1 when parents can meet teachers and find out all about the curriculum for the coming year.

See you soon!

We are looking forward to seeing all our students next week and getting the year off to a great start.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please get in touch.
