The Crane, 11 December 2023

Welcome from James Steward

Takako-sensei and her amazing TEAM’s performance of FAME have now made an entire school FAMOUS with their superb rendition of this classic show on Saturday at HIS. A packed house enjoyed many superb performances that featured a plethora of HIS talent. The show could not have been successful without the never-ending help of our many PTA Wolfpack members led by Nami-san’s Costume Team. Thank you also to the PTA for their donation of lighting and sound equipment that fortified our performance. 

The commitment from Staff, Students and HIS Families was exceptional. The memories will last forever. Many of our PTA Wolfpack members will be able to celebrate further at this week’s festive lunch at the Hilton on December 13. If you have not done so, please register today via the HIS Office. It will be a great time.

There are many events yet to occur this coming week. Santa is likely to swoop in for a quick pre-holiday visit!

The Wolfpack Korean Hot Lunch is coming Thursday. The Winter Holiday Assembly will occur on Friday morning. 

Please read further for more information.

Our last week in school is a busy one! 

  • Tuesday, Dec. 12, is the last day to donate treats. Please, no snacks or treats with nuts due to allergies of students.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 13, we are stuffing treat bags to give out on Friday before we head off to the Wolfpack Parent lunch at the Hilton!
  • Thursday, Dec. 14, we have our last Hot Lunch of the year. If you ordered a Hot Lunch please remember not to pack a lunch!
  • Friday, Dec. 15, Santa is coming to visit the students! 

Thank you to everyone who ordered from our Scholastic/Baker Book Club. For those who have ordered books, we delivered them to your child/ren on Thursday. If you haven’t received them, please check your child’s bag. 

The total price of the books everyone ordered this time was $504. We will earn 20% of this in the form of points, which we will be able to spend on books for the school library.  We are very grateful to everyone who has helped us support the school in this way. For those who didn’t manage to order in time please look out for our next Book Club! 

Finally, we would like to thank you for all the support that you have given to the Wolfpack and the students this year. We hope everyone has a great holiday season and Happy New Year. See you next year!
