DCA Parent Quiz Night

Trunk of Treat: A Wicked Success!

We would like to thank all parents, families and students for putting together such a wonderful evening. A great time was had by all, and even the weather cooperated (not a drop in sight). Massive thanks to the entire DCA crew, as they decked out the DCIS campus and made it virtually unrecognisable with cobwebs, skeletons and witches all about. Please see our main Trunk or Treat blogpost for some pictures from the event and/or go onto instagram and look up the following:

#DCAtrunkortreat

You will see dozens of photos, showing off the costumes, decorations and amazingly decked out cars. Well done to all parents and thank you for such a fun celebration.
