Dear DCIS Parents,

We had a great first week of Term 3 and I enjoyed meeting some of our new parents at the coffee morning last Friday.

Our first House Day of the term was very successful with a variety of Maths activities throughout the school. Congratulations to all the students involved in the ACSIS finals on Saturday. It was a very successful day, with our Secondary students participating in the Athletics finals and the U11 Netball players participating in the Netball finals. All our students did really well and brought back a great collection of medals. Worth mentioning is our U12 boys who placed 1st overall at the ACSIS Athletics, and the girls who placed 4th, out of 15 participating schools, with some fantastic individual results. In Netball, Dover Court came 1st and 2nd in Division 4 and 2nd and 6th in Division 2. I would also like to congratulate all the students who took part in the Meta Sprint Triathlon competition on the East Coast yesterday.

Four intrepid Year 5 students, accompanied by Mr Baines, set off for Boston yesterday to represent the school at the annual Nord Anglia Education MIT STEAM fair. We look forward to hearing how they get on through their busy and inspiring week. The Year 5s in school still have a very exciting week with their House Swim Gala and trip to Centre Stage. We have a series of swimming galas this week so we will once again be looking favourably at the weather clouds.

On Friday it was my turn to run the Lower and Upper Primary assemblies. With recent events I focussed on Kindness and how it links to the words in our Vision; especially Care, Collaboration and Global Citizenship. As part of this I showed both assemblies a new video our media team have made to show parents how we should use the drop off and pick up at the turning circle. The system we have works quite well but there is always room for improvement as we promote kindness to other car users and, of course, safety. Please click here to watch the video – Primary children will be able to tell you whether you should be the red car or the silver car! 

The Secondary Student Council is organising a clothes drive this week. They will be collecting donations between 8.00 and 8.30am at the front steps and at the car drop-off, by the turning circle. All clothes will be donated to the charity Anak Tnk, that will distribute them to street children in Manila.

Our IB exams start this week and we wish Year 13 well as they start their three weeks of examinations as a culmination of their two years of hard work.

If you haven’t already, there is still time to sign up for the DCA Parent Social, that will be held at the British Club on 11th May, it was a wonderful event last year.

Please note that tomorrow is the withdrawal deadline for those leaving us at the end of Term 3. 

I wish you all the best for the week ahead. A reminder that due to the May Day Public Holiday there is no school on Wednesday, I hope families enjoy their extra day together.

Principal
