Welcome to the Week Beginning 4th November.

Dear DCIS Parents,

Many thanks to the parents that came along to the ‘Coffee with Chris’ session last week. It was an excellent opportunity to discuss some of the recent developments at the school and what is planned in the next 12-18 months. Parents were also able to give some feedback on critical areas like communication, buses and the canteen service and these are themes we will explore in more detail at future events.

I would also like to thank the DCA for organising Friday's Halloween event, the campus looked fantastic. Events like these mean a lot to the Dover Court community and I appreciate the time and effort put in by all volunteers.

Yesterday a group of Year 6 and Year 7 students left for Pattaya and the NAE regional STEAM festival together with Mr Baines and Mr Northridge, we look forward to hearing all about their experience once they return. Mrs Nesbitt, Mr Moody and the World Scholar's Cup team leave for NYC and Yale later this week for the final round of the World Scholar's Cup. We wish them the best of luck!

Tomorrow, Tuesday, the Secondary School Open Morning for our Year 6 parents will take place and on Wednesday the Year 6 students will have their first transition day of the year.

The DCA will be meeting on Thursday, 7th November, 8.45-9.30am in The Lounge. All parents are invited. Come and share your ideas and help shape the annual Christmas Fayre.

We are very excited to be part of the IN exhibition held at the Australian High Commission. This is our second year participating in this collaboration between the international schools in Singapore and their visual arts departments, showcasing some fantastic pieces of art. The exhibition will be open to the public 7th November to 10th January. 

During the week we will be talking about the significance of Remembrance Day in school with the our students. On Friday 8th November, the theme of our assemblies will be Remembrance Day. On this day, we would like to invite the students to come to school wearing red and black, the colour of poppies and to make a donation of $2 which will be given to The British Legion Poppy Appeal. We would also like to invite parents to support our Secondary choir who will be performing at the annual Kranji Memorial Service on Sunday 10th November with students from Tanglin Trust School, Dulwich College Singapore and Marlborough College, Malaysia.

Have a great week.
