Principal’s Message

Dear HIS Community

I hope you have enjoyed the week. Thank you to everyone involved in the Korean Culture Day. It was a great event focusing on some forms of play that are popular in Korea. Aside from being lots of fun, we all expanded our repertoire of games and one thing we definitely need as much as more reading (& we need this) is more play. Related to this idea of play, the following TED talk makes a great case for the link between attributes of play and science. Also, I would like to thank Jackie and Yasuko for volunteering to help with the Festival this year. We are all looking forward to another wonderful day. Enjoy your weekend.
