Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,
I would like to start with a heartfelt thank you to the primary school staff who have worked tirelessly over the year to deliver an outstanding curriculum with so many motivating experiences for your children. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful team and I know you will join me in my thanks to each and every one of them. As the year draws to an end, we wish them all a well-deserved and relaxing break with time to recuperate with their families and friends.
The end of the year came around very quickly this time but as ever, we were super-busy right to the last minute. The final few weeks of term saw the swimming galas, which the PE team hosted and I know, were well attended, enjoyed and received by all. The Year 6 Celebration was a huge success too, as well as a lovely experience for the students who were able to reflect upon their primary years at the many schools, including Dover Court International School, they have attended. Thank you to Miss Prince and the Year 6 team for making this so special for the children, to the children for their memories and contributions and to the parents for the yummy luncheon they provided. It was great to see the Year 6 children wearing their T-shirts, which were provided by the DCA as a special gift, with such pride. We look forward to welcoming so many of our Year 6 students back in August for their start of their secondary career at DCIS.
In our assemblies on Friday, we said farewell to the staff that are leaving us – with years of service ranging from 30 to 2 years. It was a sad affair with many a tear and tissue! We wish the teachers who are heading off to new challenges and adventures well and hope they will stay in touch with us here in Singapore.
Of course, we do need to say a fond farewell to the families who are leaving Singapore. I hope you have all enjoyed being a part of our school community as much as we have enjoyed having you here. We will miss you all, thank you for sharing your experiences with us and for creating so many memories.
With the holidays here, I wish you all a restful break and look forward to seeing many of you back in August when the fun will being again.
Safe travels everyone!
Ms Kara Lebihan
Head of Primary School
