Dear DCIS Parents,

Welcome to Term 3. I hope your children enjoyed their break and are well rested and ready for the last term of this academic year.

You will have read about the terrible bombings in Sri Lanka over the Easter weekend. The events in Sri Lanka have affected a family at a FOBISIA school in Singapore and I have passed on the condolences of the DCIS community to their Headmaster. Given the small nature of the expatriate community in Singapore and that the children involved were students at Dover Court a few years ago there could be families affected by this incident. Please let your child’s class teacher or form tutor know if this is the case. We had staff in the vicinity and there may well have been families in a similar situation so please also contact us if you have concerns.

I mentioned when I wrote home recently following the shooting in Christchurch that I couldn’t write home after every global tragedy - I didn’t expect to have to communicate with families again so quickly. Our classes are completing their Acts of Kindness books over the next two weeks and we will discuss a way to incorporate our support for the communities affected by the events in Sri Lanka.

As always there was a great deal of work happening on our campus over the holiday. As well as regular maintenance the new Secondary building made rapid progress as the builders took advantage to more access to the site over the holiday. We are awaiting a final date for the pedestrian crossing to be installed. It will give children, parents and staff a safer access to the Dover MRT, bus stops and the car park in the Polytechnic. 

We were pleased to welcome new families to the school today and I’m grateful to the DCA members who help settle our new families in and to those who ran the second hand uniform sale. I look forward to meeting our new parents at the coffee morning on Friday, 8.45 - 9.30am in the DCIS Café. This will be followed by a DCA meeting at 9.30, all parents are invited.

I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate our Year 12 student Patrick who, together with his team, won the Special Effects prize at the AAYFF awards in HCMC last week. A fantastic achievement. 

Our first House Day of the term takes place on Thursday, we look forward to seeing all students in their House shirts. Also, please note that the ECA registration closes on Friday, 5.00pm.

I wish you all the best for the week ahead.


Mr. Christopher Short 
Principal
