HHIS Newsletter – September 23rd 2019
Monday September 23rd, 2019
The highlight for our school last week was the launch of our very first Music Cafe and what a success it was. The students showed just how intrepid they are as they came forward to sing and play with great enthusiasm and with touching beauty. For some, this was their first ever performance. Thank you to all our remarkable performers, to Ms Eh for her support and to Mr Sam for bringing music to life in our school.
The next Music Cafe will be on Wednesday October 30th at 4:45pm in the canteen.
Early Years’ Picnic
Our Early Years children celebrated their growing independence by making and then of course eating, their own picnic. A good time was had by all.
Enterprise In Year 9
Our thanks to Mike Staples for hosting a workshop on job applications, which greatly benefited our Year 9 students. Mike’s wisdom and real-life examples of enterprise helped our learners to begin considering jobs for the future. In future lessons they will be designing CVs and cover-letters, which will eventually lead to interviews organised with external business people. Mr Lewis.
Sports Afternoon & Sleepover with Samakee
We welcomed students from our sister school St Andrews Samakee as they joined us to take part in a now, annual sporting event. Rain may have stopped outside play, but it failed to stop the smiles as staff of both schools creatively organised a whole range of indoor games. On Saturday they were all rewarded with a terrific morning of a fun filled swimming gala at Black Mountain Water Park. It was a great sporting and social occasion for both our schools. Friendships were rekindled and new ones forged. Thanks go to Mr Aaron and Ms Pla for organising the event.
The enterprise learning theme has truly inspired Year 9. This week they have innovated recycled fashion in their Art lessons. Working with Miss Faye, students were challenged to create their own individual masterpieces from recycled paper – all this in just 60 minutes using newspaper and tape!
There will be a fashion show for the whole school to enjoy on Friday 29th November – more details will follow and we hope that you will be able to share in the celebrations.
A very big well done to all our students, parents and teachers who ran 5k and 10k at the Hua Hin Run to Give. This event supports local charities through the money raised and it was great to see so many students proudly celebrating their efforts. Students across the whole school have been learning about ‘Fit for Life’ in lessons and have been involved in many sports through PE and ECAs.
Running 5k and 10k is a great achievement!Mr Lewis
We are very keen for our students to look smart, tidy yet comfortable as this is a reflection of their attitude to learning. It is another way of showing respect. As well as adhering to uniform guidelines hairstyles too should be neat and tidy with natural colouring. Any experimenting with colour should be kept to holiday times. We will be reminding students of the importance of looking smart.
We have recently introduced school swimming costumes as part of our PE uniform. We expect all students to wear school swimming costumes from Year 2 upwards. We realise that this can not be changed overnight so please ensure that by term 2 (next January) your child has a named school swimming costume. All uniform can be purchased from the accounting office. Many thanks for your support.
Early Years’ Workshop on Thursday
Ms Rachel and Ms Jess will be leading a workshop for Early Years parents about ‘Tapestry’ which is a way of sharing children’s learning with parents. We always want our parents to be able to follow their children’s learning and this is particularly pertinent to Early Years where much of young children’s learning is captured through teachers’ observations.
The workshop will take place on Thursday September 26th at 8:40am in the meeting room.
World Peace Day
It was great to see how the children in Primary responded to Mr Matt’s assembly to mark, ‘World Peace Day’. The emphasis was on the wellbeing of our planet and the children were highly engaged in the interactive assembly and actions that they can take to achieve the UN’s 13th Sustainable Development Goal – Climate Action.
We wish Ms Katie well as she leaves us to take time off for her maternity leave. We are all very excited for Ms Katie and Mr Matt.
นักเรียน ผู้ปกครอง และครูทุกคนที่เข้าร่วมวิ่ง 5 และ 10 กิโลเมตร ในงาน Hua Hin Run to Give ทำได้ดีมาก กิจกรรมนี้สนับสนุนมูลนิธิในพื้นที เพื่อนำเงินรายได้จากการจัดงานไปสนับสนุน โดยเรามีความยินดีอย่างยิ่งที่นักเรียนของเราได้เข้าร่วมในกิจกรรมนี้ นอกจากนี้ นักเรียนยังได้เรียนรู้เกี่ยวกับ ‘Fit for Life’ ซึ่งเป็นหัวข้อในบทเรียนและเกี่ยวข้องกับกีฬาต่างๆ ผ่านวิชาพละและ ECAs
การวิ่ง 5 และ 10 กิโลเมตรถือเป็นความสำเร็จที่ยอดเยี่ยม! Mr Lewis
