Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,
Many of the students have told me about their lovely restful breaks, it is good to see everybody back at school. Having said goodbye to some old friends at the end of Term 2, we have been delighted to welcome some new families to our community for Term 3. We hope our new students are happy and settling in well to the new routines at DCIS.
Already, the school is busy with many exciting activities happening over the next few weeks. The big one is, without a shadow of a doubt, the 45th Year of the school. This is lovely celebration to be taking part in and so far the children have been involved in the makings of the 45th celebration video. It has been lovely to see (and hear!) many renditions of ‘You’ve Got a Friend’ as I have walked around the school. We look forward to seeing the finished video and spotting ourselves joining in with the fun. Friday 12th May is also our 70’s dress up day here in school, so do have a think about your child’s fun costume if you have not already.
An important day for us will be our anti-bullying awareness day, which will see the children coming to school in non-uniform. Over the course of the week the children will take part in an activity that will not only raise the awareness of bullying but also empower the children to take action in an appropriate way should they spot bullying or feel bullied themselves.
We also have a number of exciting educational visits taking place this term. Year 2 are busy planning their trip to Snow City, Year 4 and Year 2 will be visiting Centre Stage on two different dates, Nursery are shortly going to the Farmart Centre and we are looking forward to Year 1’s Duck Tour of Singapore landmarks. More information will follow if you have not received this already.
As some of our families have recently left us, we are currently looking to recruit some additional parent reader volunteers. If you are interested in taking part then please contact Mr. Marshall directly on: Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org Training will of course be provided for our volunteers. We are also looking for library volunteers to support Mrs, Sawhney. Do contact Mrs. Sawhney on Rachna.Sawhney@dovercourt.edu.sg if you would like to get involved. We would be delighted to have you on board even if you can only offer half an hour per week.
As ever, if you have any questions about the Primary School, do talk to the class teacher, Year Group Leader or myself.
Wishing you a pleasant beginning of Term 3.
Ms Kara Lebihan
Head of Primary School
