Dear DCIS Parents,

With no full half term break this term the busyness to the term seems more concentrated – it seems no time since I was last writing my newsletter piece.

Over the last 4 weeks we have had a number of fantastic activities. 4 intrepid Year 5 students, accompanied by Mr Baines, travelled to Boston for the 3rd Annual NAE MIT STEAM festival. When I met with them upon their return I had to tell them that I am often jealous as groups of children and staff head off for exciting adventures but, as a science teacher, I am especially envious of this trip as the chance to work with MIT professors for a week is such an amazing opportunity. Suffice to say all five members of the DCIS team were mesmerised by their time in the USA – despite some heavy duty jet lag! The Primary FOBISIA team had a very successful few days in Phuket. We went up a division from last year so we knew we were up against bigger schools and stiffer competition. The team rose to the occasion and each team member excelled, making us very proud. I am very grateful to the large number of parents who travelled to support our team – I am told we had the largest and best dressed parent group! Sport in school also continued to be successful with some excellent ACSIS results and some keenly fought Inter-house swimming competitions.

This week we received the results from the Singapore Kangaroo Maths Contest. I am pleased to announce that we have had some fantastic results! From the 25 students entered we have 5 gold medalist and 10 Bronze medalists. All the students who participated did a marvellous job and should be extremely proud of themselves.

For our Year 11 and 13 students this half term has only one main focus – examinations. These have started well and we look forward to students receiving their results in the summer. We are looking forward to our first Year 13 Graduation at Eden Hall shortly after the long weekend half term, an important and exciting milestone for the school.

We welcomed back Andy Barrow to Dover Court to support our Diversity Day. Andy is an ex-Paralympic wheelchair rugby player and we worked across a wide range of classes on activities to build empathy and understanding of others as well as giving tips on being an elite athlete to our GCSE PE students. Andy also wrote the first note on our ‘What is Diversity’ wall at the entrance to the school. This was so successful that the notes blossomed out onto the main reception doors and elsewhere.

As long standing parents will know we have been working with the LTA on a suitable crossing for longer than the three years I have been here. Our families and colleagues who have been here for over 10 years tell me that this has been a periodic discussion for a long time. Having made recent statements on the crossing’s opening date, I vowed to stay silent until we had concrete proof of building work in action. I am pleased to say that we have the electrics in position and trees have been cleared ready to build the infrastructure needs on both sides of the road. Our contractors are working closely with the LTA to finalise this preparatory work, the installation and then the commissioning of the traffic lights. This is due to be completed in July so the 2019 –2020 school year will start with a safer way to cross to the Dover MRT, bus stops or Polytechnic car park. 

Progress on the new Secondary building and the Sports facility continue to go well. We’ve finalised the layout for the inside of the building and we are still on track to open both facilities ready for the new school year. I am very grateful to Mr Bull and his team for the hard work they have put in sourcing and ordering all that we need to further bolster our expanded spaces.
