2017 THIMUN Singapore

MUN had a very engaging trip to Singapore, and we had delegates throughout the General Assemblies. We also had team members serve in leadership positions in the Security Council and in ECOSOC. Because of the length of the conference, delegates got to spend a lot more time lobbying and networking than they would have at a weekend conference. This lead to extremely innovative solutions being presented. While it was a long trip (and our team members still feel quite tired), everyone agreed that this year's THIMUN conference was an amazing experience!

HAS Students Celebrate Thanksgiving by Giving Back

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted" - Aesop On Saturday November 25, 2017, 16 HAS students celebrated Thanksgiving by giving back to their greater community. They traveled to Big City and volunteered at the International Body of Fighters Day event hosted by the Eden Social Welfare Foundation. It was a day-long event, and our students gained valuable life experience by truly making a difference. Although it was raining and cold, our students displayed tenacity and perseverance as they set up the stage for handicapped performers and handed out hot meals to the participants and showed their excellent bilingual skills when they translated for the organizers. At the end of t

2017 Thanksgiving Potluck Lunch

HAS held its annual Thanksgiving celebration on Friday, November 24th. Parents, students and faculty members gathered to give thanks for all the positives the school year has brought and to enjoy the pleasant atmosphere and mingle. Additionally, because there was a potluck, the school donated its original lunch to a local homeless shelter to spread the holiday cheer. Afterward, students enjoyed a variety of activities, including American touch football and various physical activities to work off some of the food previously enjoyed. While the abundance of food was certainly a highlight, the pleasant conversations and interactions among all stakeholders made the event a true success.

2017 Lock-In

The students started the evening with all sorts of activities, such as Hot Seat, Kahoot, a Zombie Game and so on. Many of the activities were student-led and it was great seeing many of our students acting as true leaders! Later on there was a delicious dinner followed by lots of sports activities to work it off. Then the students had free time and spent much of the evening watching movies, playing games and just chatting and having a great time together outside of the classroom. Lock In was a wonderful event that cr

AP Chinese 校外教學

在11月6日新竹美國學校AP Chinese 學生校外教學,針對古建築的介紹。 我們前往明湖路的一座百年古厝--「迎㬢山室」,當地人稱為柴橋古厝或林家大宅。 介紹了這棟二進式的三合院,建築方位、風水、彩繪、馬背、懸魚、垂花、門聯、護龍、地磚、正廳……等。 二進六護龍的格局,見證過昔日林家的風華,迄今斑斑點點的歲月軌跡,在土角的露袒、在窗櫺的斷殘、在褪色的彩繪上,無疑是六、七代子孫們的散居及不合所致。 不過我們正向看它,這古樸中溢出的富貴很美,建築的文化意涵很美,「迎㬢」中的期待很美,這麼美好的時光,與學生短暫的共度~
