HHIS Newsletter – March 4th 2019
Monday March 4th 2019
It was lovely to come back and see all our new students settled and happy after just a week. I extend a warm welcome to all our new families.
We also welcome Mr Chris Harman to our school. Along with Mr Tom, Mr Chris will be providing support for students who need a boost with their English.
Our recruitment in London was very successful and we look forward to the arrival of our newly recruited teachers, who will join our growing staff in August.
Parent/teacher meetings take place this week. If you have had any difficulty making an appointment to see you child’s teacher please do contact Mr Jeremy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or K Cheng (email@example.com). These meetings will give you the opportunity to see how your child is progressing, what the next steps for their learning will be and how you might support them at home.
Sports Day Preparations
Students have been full of energy in preparing for and harnessing their techniques towards our forthcoming sports day events. There will be a variety of activities for everyone to enjoy and also share their sporting talents.

Regular reminders will be given to students in anticipation of their big day of sport!
Swimming Competition – Marlin’s Mayhem

The HHIS Snack Attack Challenge 2019 is underway!
An exciting half term is planned for Year 7 and 8 students, who will be working across their subjects to design, create and market a healthy fair trade snack. The group judged to have developed the most complete all-round product and campaign will be given the chance to sell their snack for profit in Hua Hin.
Already this week, students have studied fair trade ideas, drafted business strategies, conducted market research and developed energy tests. Fantastic ideas have emerged and in the coming weeks, these will be designed into products structures for their websites. There will be a number of other exciting tasks and students are encouraged to keep thinking BIG and to use all their I Values!

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – a big well done!
We are very proud to announce that our first student has completed their Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Bronze Level Award. Theo completed the award during 2018 and has now received the full confirmation of his excellent achievement.
All HHIS, students aged 14 years old and above are able to participate in the DofE award scheme. We now have 25 students involved and they are all working towards achieving their volunteering, physical and skills projects. Our students are also involved in planning and undertaking overnight camping and hiking expeditions, as well as taking a lead role in supporting our younger students in ECAs.
Well done to everyone for their ongoing efforts! Theo managed to complete the Award by making steady progress in all three activity areas by working independently towards his goals. Mr Alasdair and Mr Sam will be supporting the new group of candidates to do their expedition trips in term 3.
We are continuing to measure and monitor the air quality throughout the day at school and act accordingly. We have now planted a number of new trees We must insist that cars are not left with their engines running as this has a detrimental effect on air quality. Thank you for all your support. The winds will be changing very soon.
Mr Jeremy จะแจ้งรายชื่อนักเรียนและรายละเอียดต่างๆ ภายในสัปดาห์นี้
