As Tet nears, excitement starts to build for the New Year and we are looking forward to the Year of the Dog for many reasons.
This year we will apply for re-accreditation with the Council of International Schools, which means that staff are busily preparing reports and collating evidence to support our application.
HIS has recently been accepted as an SAT testing centre, so we are very pleased that we can offer a safe and stable environment in which our students can sit this important examination.
The Council of International Schools has asked me to lead 2 accreditation teams in Hong Kong in March and May. This will give us an opportunity to share and exchange educational ideas and innovations with two of Hong Kong’s international schools.
We wish all families a safe and happy Tet holiday and look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Monday 26th February.
Chúc mừng năm mới
A Healthy Eating Reminder
With Tet fast approaching, we should be mindful about healthy eating. During the next few weeks most of us will increase our calorie intake as we attend family feasts and Tet parties to celebrate the New Year. Let’s remind ourselves of the healthy eating food pyramid:
- The foods we should eat the most of are vegetables, fruits and grains (brown rice is healthier than white rice!!)
- Dairy, lean meats, fish, eggs, nuts & seeds should be eaten in moderation
- Healthy fats such as those found in olive oil should be kept to a minimum
Avoid sugary drinks, candy and super sweet desserts because they add to our risk of developing diabetes and cause tooth decay.
I wish you a safe and happy Tet - chúc mừng năm mới !!!
Regards, Nurse Ngan
