Alumni in Action: Taeyoon Choi '00

Alumnus Taeyoon Choi '00 recently returned to SFS for the first time in 20 years to host an art workshop for British School Year 5 and 6 students. He first had the students draw sketches of their partners with their opposite hand emphasizing the fact that art is not about perfection but perception. The next project involved large canvases where the students were challenged to paint a portrait of themselves as a tree.

Taeyoon is a groundbreaking artist based out of NYC whose has done projects, participatory workshops, performances, and installations at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, & the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center. In the coming weeks, he will be presenting a workshop at the Leeum Samsung Museum.

Thank you to Taeyoon for giving back and enriching the educational experience at SFS. And thank you to all of the 60+ alumni who have engaged with the school this year as CT speakers, workshop presenters, video content creators, and mentors/connectors for our students.

If you are an SFS alum who is interested in sharing your time and talent with students, please contact Director of Alumni Relations, Eric DeHaan at eric.dehaan@seoulforeign.org.

 

 

Significant Voices podcast

For their unit 'Impact', Grade 4 students focused on the central idea 'Significant events and people impact society.' During this unit, they inquired into significant people and events from history, and how they shaped society. One of the ways they did this was through a research podcast project. Each student chose a significant person from history to research. They wrote clear and organized notes on this person and then used their new knowledge to write an interesting podcast script. Grade 4 listened to many professional podcasts to learn and be inspired. Aaron Moniz, from Inspire Citizens, taught students about the impact of podcasts and how to record and edit using iPads. The informative and creative podcast series is called 'Significant Voices' because they tell the stories of significant people. However, through the retelling of these amazing stories, the students' own voices became significant as educators.

Andre Jin Coquillard named Alumnus of the Year

Seoul Foreign School (SFS) is pleased to announce alumnus Andre Jin Coquillard has been named Alumnus of the Year. This is the highest honor the School bestows on its graduates, and recognises the recipient's excellence in their chosen field of endeavour and outstanding service to the community or profession as well as devotion to SFS. Andre is the first alumnus to receive this honor for athletic achievement. He will speak to the graduating class of 2022 in celebration of commencement in June, and will be added to the Wall of Honor on campus.

In 2021, Andre represented South Korea in men's rugby at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. He debuted for the Korean national team in 2015 and is the squad's first naturalized citizen. Andre has also competed in Canada and the USA, including at University of California, Berkeley, where he was a member of three Division 1 National Championship teams, and professionally for the Seattle Seawolves. Andre has recently featured on the JTBC television program Let's Play Soccer.

Andre was born in Seoul to mother Kim Dong Su, the first Korean fashion model to work overseas and a television and fashion personality of the 1980s and 1990s, and father Norwell Coquillard from Chicago, Illinois, former chairman and president of Cargill Investment (China) Limited and Dartmouth College football player. Andre lived and studied throughout Asia in his youth and attended Seoul Foreign School in Grade 5 and 6 from 2001 to 2003. In September 2021, Andre returned to the School's campus where he assisted with Physical Health and Education classes, shared his story and answered student questions in sectional assemblies, and spent time with the Director of Sports and Director of Alumni Relations.

Upon learning that he was this year's recipient, Andre shared three key memories of SFS. "Firstly, the broad curriculum I had as a child has helped me develop as a more well-rounded adult. Secondly, I started participating in well-administered organized team sports at SFS. Looking back, I think my love for team sports and the dream of becoming a professional athlete is because of my time as an SFS Crusader. Lastly, my classmates from 2001-2003 are still my friends to this day! Every single one of my friends from SFS that I am still in contact with is living their best life. I didn't know it then, but it was a privilege to grow up alongside them and unknowingly I believe we pushed each other in the classroom, in the gym and on the field to help each other reach our goals."
