Ennead's Seoul Foreign School, New High School has officially begun construction.
I write to inform you that most recently we officially celebrated the groundbreaking of our New High School, due to open in August 2018. I’ve included photographs of the ceremony which was momentous for a number of reasons. Not only will the new facility have classrooms, science laboratories, libraries, art studios and design areas all constructed to meet the needs of 21st century education, it will also house numerous communal areas where students and educators can meet together in less formal settings, allowing for collaborative and spontaneous learning opportunities. The SFS High School will be an open, airy and vibrant space. It will have a college campus feel, helping to prepare your children as they move closer to the next stage of their educational journey.

Moreover, the New High School Building is the result of many hours of hard work and commitment from staff, faculty, parents and members of our Governance Teams, who were represented at the event. There are so many in our community who have been prepared to work and volunteer in support of this landmark project.
However, the ceremony was notable in that we welcomed the Mayor of the Seodamun Gu to celebrate the event. SFS has worked hard over the last few years in connecting with local charities and organizations to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. In recognition of these efforts I was excited to sign, with the Mayor, a Memorandum of Understanding to work together in support of families in need within our local community. Seoul Foreign School students should not only have the opportunity to work and learn in a beautiful environment but also the encouragement to learn how to help others along the way.
If you are interested in finding out more about our exciting plans and how the community is getting involved in supporting this project please do not hesitate to contact me or our Communications Team.
