Thank you for joining Teachers Appreciation Day! We heard from many teachers and staff how much they enjoyed being 'appreciated.'

As Mr. Alonso and his family will be leaving HIS at the end of this week. A gift from PTA was given to him and his wife at Secondary Assembly this morning. We wish him and his family all the best!

Thank you for your support which made Spring Bazaar to be such a fun, successful event! PTA flea market had a lot of visit and Bake Sale table was full of home baked goodies. It would not have been possible without your generosity. Profit we have made will be shared as soon as it is available. We appreciate your kindness.

Spring Bazaar is this weekend. We will start setting up in the gym from 14:50. If you have time before picking your child/ren up, please drop by to help.

We would love to have more sweets and savory for our Bake Sale. If you cannot come on Saturday, you can drip it in 206 on Friday.

If you have time (even for ten minutes!), please come and help with PTA booth, Hot drinks and Bake Sale at Spring Bazaar. The more the merrier and it will be a nice opportunity to get to know other parents/guardians!
