The Crane, 8 October 2023

Welcome from James Steward

First, I must remind all families that Parent Teacher Student Conferences will take place on Monday. If you require further information regarding appointments, please contact Makkie san in the HIS Office. As well, please ensure that children remain with parents at all times during the conferences. It is important to respect others who are participating at different times during the day.

As I have noted many times, our school population is increasing. This means that more cars are entering the surrounding roads of HIS. Therefore, please do not park on the road. Instead, please use the school playground, which is open daily in the afternoons by 15:00, and when necessary, in the mornings at 8:30. 

Thank you to the PTA Wolfpack for their superb decorating of the HIS corridors this past week. The school has been emblazoned and illuminated with fabulous Halloween decorations seemingly everywhere! HIS looks wonderful! Please check our HIS Photo Gallery for further insights.

Please read further for more information.

Reminder: After School Study and Play

HIS has grown significantly over the past year. We are now pushing 190 students!

Having stated this, for many students want to, or need to, remain at HIS after normal school hours.

For younger students in Primary that remain, they must be accompanied by a parent in order to play by the ECKG room. 

No ‘ball playing’ is allowed in the field area. There are too many cars in the area and it is not safe. 

For students waiting for pick-up, they must remain in the Genkan area.

For Secondary students that have permission to study, they can only do so in the Meeting Room, or the Genkan. 

HIS is a lively place and we love this! However, all students must make responsible choices while following the simple guidelines stated above. 

Thank you for your help in this matter. We appreciate it!
