Secondary School Updates

News and events in Secondary School are now highlighted in the weekly Secondary School Spotlight

Year 7 - Year 9 Tic Tac Toe Homework

Tic Tac Toe Homework packs for Term 1 for Secondary School students in Year 7 to Year 9 are attached below and will be shared with students and parents this week. The Tic Tac Toe packs are also available from our Secondary School (Years 7 - 11) webpage.

Lunch Service: Sodexo

As previously communicated the main cafeteria will go cash free from Thursday 28th September. The DCIS Café will continue to accept cash. Although, the cash facility in the DCIS Café is really designed to accommodate parents for occasional use, so we recommend that all students are signed up for a Campus Online account. This limits cash on site and allows parents to track purchases that students make during the day through their Campus Online accounts. You can access the Campus Online page at this link.

For more information, please contact Sodexo at:

DCA Parent Association and Class Parents

There are DCA Class Parents now for nearly all classes in the school. Thank you to all the parents (new and returning) who have stepped up to the plate to help with this. 

The next DCA event is the Trunk or Treat. Information on signing up for a car has been sent to parents today. Ticket sales will follow next week. We are looking for volunteers to help with the organisation and running of this and other events. Please contact us on dca@dovercourt.edu.sg  or when you see us on campus to let us know if you have some spare time to help out and check out the photos and information shared on the DCA Opening Family Picnic blog.
