Dear DCIS Parents,

Last week was an action-packed week with STEAM activities going on across Primary and in some of the Secondary classes. A big thank you to Mr Baines and Mr Northridge for planning the activities. We also have a lot of IPC exit points over the last weeks of term, I enjoyed seeing some fantastic and very creative buildings in Year 2. We welcomed Juilliard dance curriculum specialist Donna Costello to Dover Court last week. I unfortunately missed the practical parent dance workshop, but the feedback from it was very positive. Donna also worked with our students across both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, where the students were introduced to a series of movement based tasks and through improvisation they created their own choreography.  

Last week also saw our students in Year 5 travelling to Indonesia for their Residential trip. We had over 160 very happy, sandy and quite tired children arriving back to our school on Friday afternoon, eager to share all memories made. Trips like these are wonderful experiences for both students and staff and I am very grateful to Mr Odey and his team for their hard work with the trip. 

Tomorrow evening our counsellor Mr Moody will run the first Single Parents Network in The Lounge, 7.30pm. If you would like to participate, please sign up using this link

Finally, a gentle reminder that Friday is the last day of ECAs.
