HHIS Newsletter – December 2nd 2019
Monday December 2nd 2019
Christmas has arrived at HHIS with a visit from Santa for our youngest children. This will be followed by more Christmas festivities with the performances by our Early Years and Primary students on Tuesday.
Our Early Years and Key Stage One students will perform the ‘The Greatest Snowman’ on Tuesday at 9:15am
KS2 students’ ‘Christmas Extravaganza’ will take place at 6:00pm on Tuesday evening. If at all possible, it would be helpful if students could go home at 3:30pm for a rest, before coming back into school. Of course, that this is not possible for those who live a long way away, they will be supervised in school.
Students are selling tickets for the performance at the gate for 50 Baht. Thanks to Claire Cordner, this includes the now traditional, drink of mulled wine (non-alcoholic) and also a snack.
We realise that everyone wants to be able to share the performances with distant family and friends so our IT team will be filming the performances. This will then be shared with parents. A photo shoot time will also be held at the end of each performance.
So, please sit back and enjoy the performances.
The U11 Cricket team travelled to Bangkok on Wednesday to take part in a Kwik Cricket Tournament hosted at Brighton College. Former England Cricket Captain, Mike Gatting (OBE) was in attendance and umpired many of the games. He was particularly impressed by the performance of the HHIS cricketers and took the time to speak to the team about their excellent attitude. He was also on hand to offer some individual coaching tips that the boys used to full advantage in their games. A huge congratulations to all involved for a great day of Cricket (and a well earned 2nd place in their group). Mr Mike.
The whole school was entertained by a dazzling array of talent on Friday. The Modern Dance ECA opened the event and created a real buzz in the audience. We then enjoyed further dancing by Jess in Year 10 and the music throughout the afternoon was performed by bands from Year 7, 8 and 9. Students have been working very hard within Music lessons and have also shown real dedication by completing extra practice at lunchtimes.
We were also very lucky to enjoy an incredible showcase of fashion designed by Year 9. Students have been learning about enterprise this term and were inspired to spread the message about the importance of recycling. Year 9 students innovated their own personal designs using recycled paper. A big thank you to Miss Olivia, Miss Faye and Mr Sam. Mr Lewis.
It has been a highly successful and enjoyable term. Thank you for all your support.
Our last day is Wednesday December 4th and we return to school on Monday January 6th. Our next school events are Sports days in the week beginning January 13th.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Joyous New Year.
