DCA Class Parents

DCA Class Parents are needed for classes across the school, so we have created an online survey to recruit volunteers for this critical role in our school. If you are interested in becoming a Class Parent, please take our survey or contact dca@dovercourt.edu.sg.

Forms and Communication

We thank you all for taking the time to complete the required forms via Docusign. Our Admissions Office is busy updating our database and we will have a clean list of contacts in the next week. However, as a reminder, it is extremely important that we are kept informed of updated information. Should your child be taken ill at any stage, we need to be able to contact you. If, since completion of the Family Contact and Information Form, your number or address has changed, please notify the school office immediately.

Lunch Service: Sodexo
By now all parents should have received an email from Sodexo, our on-campus catering service. You can access the Campus Online page at this link.

For more information, please contact Sodexo at:

Reading Volunteer Programme

‘Reading Volunteers' will be a regular commitment of approximately 1 hour per week and will be scheduled at the same time each week for those who would like to take part. If you are interested then please could you email the information below to Mrs. Norsheila Abdul: Norsheila.Abdul@dovercourt.edu.sg

  • your name
  • your phone number
  • your own child/children’s class(es) 
  • the year group you are interested in helping with 
  • the day that best suits you

Medical Information

We would like to remind new parents who have not returned their child's Medical Form to do so as soon as possible as it is crucial that the school has this information in order to ensure the well-being of your child. If you are returning and have had any changes to your medical status, then please complete the form and submit it to our School Reception.

Transport - Safety Rules

The well-being of our students is the starting point, the centre and the end of all school policy decisions. Ensuring the safety of your children is of paramount importance to us. Please bear with us as we embed a safe procedure for the students. To effect this we need your collaboration and cooperation. Please adhere to the saftey rules and Arrival and Dismissal Traffic Management Plan outlined from page 31 in the Parent Handbook.

Car Drop Off Notification

Please Note: To facilitate a faster, more efficient drop-off process at the turning circle, we do ask parents to stay in the car and allow DCIS teachers to assist your child in alighting.  We appreciate that, especially at this time of year, parents may like to spend time saying goodbye, however this leads to traffic backing up and prevents buses from entering the campus to drop students off.

Water Bottles

In the interests of safety, we do not allow glass water bottles on campus. We appreciate that parents may wish to use glass instead of plastic and suggest that a ‘Glasstic’ bottle (a glass container encased in plastic) may be used instead. These shatterproof glasstic bottles are available from department stores throughout Singapore and also online at http://www.lazada.sg/catalog/?q=glasstic+bottle and range in price from $27- $34.00.

Communications Reminder

Please note that further details on weekly events and student achievements are also highlighted on the DCIS school bloghomepage, and on Facebook

As students settle in to their new arrival and dismissal routines, please be rest assured that our staff is committed to answering your questions about the new school year, from class locations to sports teams, from parent forms to bus schedules. The first line of enquiry is your child's class or form teacher. If any questions remain unanswered, please refer to the relevant Year Group Leader.

Kind regards,
Mr. Christopher Short
DCIS Principal
