• Fun Day (Next Saturday!)

Principal’s Message

Dear HIS Community

Thank you to all of the parents who attended the Growth Mindset workshop earlier in the week. If you were not able to make it, here are the workshop slides: Growth mindset and resilience.

We have welcomed our visitors from Comenius College in the Netherlands and they will be with us for the week so we are looking forward to getting to know them over this time. Thank you very much to all of our HIS host families for opening your homes and your hearts to our guests.

Next week on Saturday is our HIS Fun Day so we are all looking forward to that and on our Crane video this week, you can find out about one of the activities. There is some information below. On the Crane video, you can see our Crane Junior Club leading the whole primary school in a wonderful activity, helping students appreciate the qualities of their classmates. The TED Talk this week is about cultivating leadership by focusing on the person we want to be. Some of the content reminded me of the leadership modeled by our Crane Junior Club at their assembly.

Enjoy the weekend.

Fun Day (Coming soon!)

One week left until Fun Day! The attached pdf contains key information for all attending on the 13th so please read it carefully. Fun Day 2019 Information
Also, on Tuesday, families who have pre-ordered activities tickets and/ or food will receive an envelope which will be in their child’s school bag or given to the student to take home. Please check your child’s school back for the envelope.
All volunteers planning to help set up for Fun Day on Friday afternoon are asked to arrive anytime from 3:15 as we will start setting up outside once the school buses have left. We are aiming to have everything set up by 6:00 pm.
Thank you, everyone, for all your help and support in making this a wonderful event for our school community.
