Year 7/8/9 Behaviour Expectations

Students in Year 7/8/9 are expected to act as positive role models to the other students at all times; upholding the schools aims for students to be respectful, responsible, tolerant, confident and striving for academic excellence.  To help promote these values students will be rewarded merit points when they demonstrate these characteristics around the school.  Examples of this could include providing insightful answers in class discussions, producing a particularly good piece of work, helping other students when on the playground or taking on a positive leadership role around the school.  Once the class has collected a predetermined number of merits (linked to the number of students in the class) we will have a class reward on a Friday afternoon.

If a student chooses to not try to uphold these school aims they will receive a demerit.  If a student collects 5 demerits they will receive a 5 minute break time detention, if a student receives 15 demerits in a term an email will be sent to the parents notifying them about this.  Demerits can be received for not being respectful to other students or adults, repeatedly not producing work to a level expected of them, repeatedly not completing homework on time or for regularly not bringing to school the required equipment.

The students’ merits and demerits will be recorded in their Merit/Spelling books which they are expected to have in school every day.  Parents are encouraged to check these books regularly to see how their son/daughter is doing.

Year 7/8/9 Packing List

Students will need to bring the following items to school every day;

  • A laptop which is fully charged (please see separate guidance for laptop specifications).
  • The charger for their laptops.
  • A mouse to use with their laptop.
  • Any workbooks they have taken home for homework.
  • Their merit/spelling book
  • Their homework diary

Students will store their laptops on a dedicated table at the back of the room or in their locker.  They will not be allowed to keep their laptop in a bag on the floor or on the back of their chair.

All other stationery will be provided for by the school.  However, the students may want to bring in the following optional items;

  • A pencil case containing a blue, black and red pen; a pencil; pencil sharpener; eraser; ruler; protractor; and a compass.
  • Coloured pencils to use for mind maps, poster work etc.
  • A combination padlock to use for their locker (please no key padlocks in case the keys get lost).

Year 7/8/9 Homework Expectations

In Year 7/8/9 homework is seen as a valuable tool to consolidate prior learning, prepare students for future learning in class or to provide time for students to complete tasks which we do not have time for in a busy school day.  The following expectations for homework are based on best practise from leading secondary schools in the United Kingdom.

Whole School Sports Day Thursday 15th June

 

Start Time: 9:30 am     Finish Time: 12:30 pm    Where: Spanish Fields, Dong-Gu, Ulsan

On Thursday 15th June F1-Y9 students will take part in the annual Sports Day to be held at the Spanish Fields.  Students will be in mixed age teams, and will participate in a number of athletic activities throughout the morning, collecting valuable points in an attempt to be part of the winning team. All teams have been given the name of an animal to create even more excitement! There will also be Year group sprint races, plus tug of war competitions to add spice to the day.

Participation, fun and healthy competition are the aims for the day so please come along and support your child.

It would be appreciated if your child could come to school in their PE uniform and sports shoes. Please also ensure that your child puts sunscreen on before coming to school, and that they bring a hat, a filled water bottle, gloves for the tug of war event, plus a nutritious snack. All students (including EYC) should arrive at main school by 8.45am and will register in their classrooms as normal. EYC staff will meet their students in the front of school and then escort them to the cafeteria.

Students will travel to/from Spanish Fields by bus (please see * note below).

As part of the fun-filled morning, a special parent/teacher tug of war event will be held, so please come along prepared with sports shoes!

*Please note that Thursday 15th is a half day, as has been previously advertised, and there will be no afternoon classes. You may therefore collect your child once they return by bus from Spanish Fields (no later than 1pm).

We look forward to your support on Thursday the 15th.

Sports Day And Swimming Help

Just a reminder that I am looking for parent help for both the HFS Whole School Sports Day on June 15th, and the Swimming classes that commence next week. Without enough parent hands the Sports Day cannot possibly run effectively, as all teaching staff and assistants are all heavily involved already.  Basically I need help in escorting the various teams around a course of 7 athletic events and generally supervising them. All simple stuff which will take no longer than one hour. You can then relax and settle down to watch the sprint races and tug of war safe in the knowledge that you have “done your bit” for the HFS community.Your cooperation in this matter would be really appreciated. Full instructions will of course be given.

Please rush your interest to me at richardmoss@hyundaiforeignschool.com

Many thanks
