HFS Newsletter – Term 2 – Week 9

Posted in - Latest News

Class Photographs

We will be taking class and individual photographs next Thursday (16th March). We would like all students to be wearing red or blue school shirts on this day.

New School Site Update

On Tuesday a group of students from our Student Council had the opportunity to visit the new school site and they were very excited about what they saw.

Currently, a design team has been chosen and design work is in progress. As soon as we have the design finalised we will be sharing these with the community. On Friday this week, the design team will be visiting some other schools in our area to get some ideas.

Everything related to the relocation is on track and students and staff are becoming more and more excited about the move.

Updated COVID-19 Protocols

In line with the further relaxation of Covid-19 rules by the Ministry of Education, we would like to share the following information with the parent community.

  • Temperature Checks – Starting from Monday 13 March, there will be no more temperature checks either before the students board the school bus or before they go into the Cafeteria before lunch
  • Masks – Students will still be required to wear masks on the bus
  • 7-day self-isolation – This is still required for those who catch COVID-19

Please help us by remaining to be vigilant of COVID-19 symptoms at home.

The school is also aware that the Korean government is currently considering further relaxing the Covid-19 rules. As soon as the government makes an announcement, we will reflect it in our Covid-19 protocol and share it with our parent community.

2023/24 School Calendar

Here is the School Calendar for next year. The only change from the draft published last week is that the mid-term break in term 1 has been moved back one week to align with other schools in the area.

Parent Consultation Group

The school would like to invite all interested parents to the first meeting of the new Parent Consultation Group on Thursday 23rd March at 5.30 pm.

The purpose of this group is to:

  • To ensure smooth and effective communication amongst all stakeholders in the school
  • To help the school community acquire an improved understanding of the operation of the school
  • To more readily listen to the views and opinions of the school community and reflect them in the management of the school

The agenda for our first meeting will be:

  • Discussion of how this group will operate
  • Update on the relocation process to the new school
  • Update on the proposal to change the school name
  • Sharing some of the feedback we received from our CIS Evaluation
  • General plans for Term 3 and the 2023/24 academic year
  • Opportunities for increasing engagement with the wider school community
