Our first DCA meeting for parents was held this week after Parent Curriculum Evening and the following events were discussed for the month of August:
DCA Family Picnic, Saturday 3rd September
The DCA is very excited about its first social event of the term! The family picnic is happening this Saturday, 3rd September at school from 4.00pm-7.00pm.
Welcoming new families to the Dover Court community and welcoming back those returning after the holidays, bring the family along and join in the fun with a BBQ, ice-cream cart, bouncy slide and castle and fun & games on the pitch.
Either bring a picnic or buy from the fabulous Sidecar Sausages bbq on the day!
Feel free to bring a bottle too!!
As per all DCA events, no parking will be allowed on the school premises so please find alternatives.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
Transitions Workshop, Wednesday 7th September
Have you recently moved to Singapore? Are you concerned about how you and your children will adjust to your new life? Has your children’s behavior changed since you arrived?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the DCA and Vivienne Scott, DCIS Educational Psychologist, would like to invite you to attend a Transitions Workshop on Wednesday September 7th at 8.30am.
This workshop will focus on: -
· Relocating and the impact of transition
· Parents’ own support needs and capacity to respond to their children
· How children’s behaviour should be recognised as a means of communication
· The importance of structure and routine
· Parents role modelling positive skills
This will be an interactive workshop with activities and provocations to facilitate group conversations and networking.
