As you are aware with the recent addition of Mr Kearney to the H.F.S. Team we will be splitting the Year 1 and 2 classes. This will take effect immediately after the Chuseok Holiday break. Ms You will take charge of the Year 1 group and Mr Kearney will take charge of the Year 1 / 2 group. The complete class lists are displayed on the link below. Feel free to contact either Ms. You or Mr. Kearney should you have any queries.
Sadly we must also bid farewell to Aarav Sharma and Aayan Biswas from the Year 1 / 2 class. We have enjoyed having them at H.F.S and wish both of them and their families the best of luck and success in the future.
2017-2018 Year 1 and Year 1 – 2 Student list
The school has recently adopted the Progress Test Series by GL Assessment as the way we measure students progress in the school. It is hoped that the information provided by these assessments will provide a clearer illustration to the parents on how their son/daughter is doing at school. More information about the assessments can be found here.
As part of the school starting to use these tests we need to perform “benchmark” tests with the students. The purpose of these benchmark tests is to get a starting level for the students. This information will be then used to further inform the teachers what the students can and cannot do and help us to plan our lessons accordingly. The score from these assessments will also be used as the score against which we measure the students progress at the end of the school year.
Unlike Years 3-9, all of the Year 2 students and some of the Year 1 students, who are well able to read and understand simple texts by themselves will be taking these tests tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday (14/09/2017 – 15/09/2017) so that we can allocate our students either in Year 1 or Year 1/2 classes according to the school’s criteria. Normally, there is no necessity of Year One students to take this tests, but teacher assessment.
