DCA Christmas Fayre

Christmas at DCIS

A huge thank you to the DCA for decorating the campus last Friday – all the trees and decorations have brought the festive season to us. We even have students taking selfies with the snowmen at the roundabout. After the Carols by Candlelight, DCIS will continue celebrating Christmas with a number of events across the community:

1. DCA Christmas Fayre, Saturday, 10th December, 4.00pm - 7.00pm

The second annual Christmas Fayre will take place on Saturday 10th December from 4pm till 7pm. This is a DCA event organized by parents for the DCIS community and none of it would be possible without the help and support of volunteers throughout the school. Please click here to find out how you can lend a hand at this wonderful event.

2. Lower Primary Christmas Performances (Nursery to Year 2)

Please note that there has been a slight calendar change to the Lower Primary Christmas Performances for Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. They will have their own separate Christmas assemblies on:

Tuesday, 13th December, Cooper Hall

  • 10.00am Nursery and Reception
  • 11.00am Year 1 and Year 2

Wednesday, 14th December, Cooper Hall 

  • 10.00am Nursery and Reception
  • 11.00am Year 1 and Year 2

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Lower Primary Christmas Performances.  It should be a lovely celebration of the festive season.

A few notes on the day:

  • Please try not to arrive too early as there are two shows taking place each day which will mean there are a lot of parents around the school. 
  • We ask that if you are driving that you park across the road at the Singapore Polytechnic or in the HDB lot.
  • Please keep the aisles clear and refrain from standing at the back as we will be using these areas as a part of the show. 
  • There will be coffee  on sale before and after the shows at the DCIS Cafe.
  • There will be a strict no entry without your ticket policy on the day as for most of our shows we  will be at full capacity. Please do remember to bring your ticket along.
  • Finally, if you are bringing little ones, they need to be able to be quiet and entertained for the duration of the show. If your child does become upset please take them out of the hall immediately and then re-enter when they are quiet. This is to help our performers stay focused and not become distracted.

Many thanks for your help with the costumes.  We are sure the children will look great!

Mrs K Gray
Year 1 Class Teacher
Deputy Head of Lower Primary

UK Passports: Are yours about to expire?

As the holiday season approaches, the Consular Section at the British High Commission in Singapore is undertaking an awareness campaign about British passport validity, with the aim of reducing the number of Emergency Travel Documents  issued during the months of November, December and January. Remember: Most countries around Asia require six months’ validity on passports.

We kindly ask all parents and guardians to double check the expiry date on their passports to avoid any unpleasant surprises at the check-in counter.
