HSP: What Have We Been Up To?

During the last few weeks there have been a lot of changes. We have said goodbye to 2 of our students, Hui and Leo, who had been with us for a very long time; we said goodbye again to one of our star students, Miu; we have said hello to a new student (Sammy, from Vietnam) and we have said Happy Birthday to a beloved young lady, Annie! I have recently taken a few weeks break and am now back with a renewed energy and fresh ideas! I would like to thank teachers, Annie and Kate, for looking after the flock while I was gone!

FAREWELL BOYS!

It was an end of an era as we said goodbye two of our longest running students, Hui (China) and Leo (Thailand). It was quite a celebration yet a very sad time to see these boys leave the family. We’re so happy that they have graduated and settled into their high school studies. All the best boys!

Farewell Hui and Leo

HELLO SAMMY!

Although she has been with our class for a few weeks now, she joined us only days before I went on leave. So, allow me to officially introduce to you the lovely Sammy, from Vietnam!

Welcome Sammy!

 

ANOTHER SAD GOODBYE!

It was with great sadness that we said goodbye to Miu, from Maccau. It has been a wonderful 8 weeks with Miu, who was a valuable part of our HSP family. I hope you enjoyed your time in High School Preparation, and I wish you all the very best in your future high school journey and beyond!

Farewell Miu!

WHILE I WAS AWAY …

PANCAKES??

What’s this? Pancakes … in English class?? YES! That’s what learning English is all about! During a rare rainy day on the Sunshine Coast, our students were lucky enough to take to the hotplate and cook up a storm! Under Kate’s instruction, our students went shopping for ingredients and cooked up some absolutely yummy looking pancakes. How good do they look?! I wish I was there to enjoy that feast!

THE SCIENCE OF FLIGHT

What better way to learn about the science (and the vocabulary that goes with it) than to fly your own plane … well, paper plane that is!

SPORT

The Friday afternoon sport was once again basketball, while the girls improved their frisbee throwing skills!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNIE!

With Annie’s 16th birthday over the weekend, we wanted to celebrate her sweet 16th together. Annie provided the cake (a BIG thanks to her host family for that!), which was SO big we couldn’t even finish it! What a delicious cake it was! Congratulations Annie! It’s truly wonderful having you in this class and I wish you a very happy year.

So, in just a few shorts weeks there have been so many changes. It’s exciting to see what the future holds for these amazing students and for the HSP class. Remember to stay tuned for more of the latest news from the HSP class. We look forward to sharing our awesome adventures with you next time.

Until next time …

– Owen (Teacher of H.S.P.)
