Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,
The year seems to have passed very quickly as we welcomed the students back for Term 3. They all looked rested from the break as we all are looking forward to the challenges ahead.
This term will continue to bring some more exciting opportunities. We will have a group of students participating in the NAE Global Campus Les Martinets expedition in Switzerland. They have been working hard in the training sessions to make sure they are prepared for the rigours of this alpine adventure. Our NYAA (Duke of Edinburgh International Award) students will take part in their preparation and assessment expeditions for the Bronze Award. In addition to this we will have students attending MIT in Boston and visiting the United Nations in New York.
Our Year 6 and Year 9 students will be concentrating on their important transition points. Year 6 will be getting ready to join the Secondary School and Year 9 will be finalising their iGCSE options for the next academic year.
Finally, our Year 11 (and some Year 10) students will begin their iGCSE examinations in May. This will give them the opportunity to be rewarded for the hard work they have put in for the last 2 years. We wish them all the very best of luck.
We are expecting this to be a very productive term and I look forward to updating you on our progress.
Mr. John Smith
Head of Secondary School
