The workshop Living in Singapore - Tips for Settling in provided information for parents new to Singapore and new to DCIS. Settling in to a new school and/or country does have its challenges both physically and emotionally. Mr Moody presented some background information on living in Singapore , such as acts, figures, cultural curiosities, places of interest etc, as well as highlighting some of the transition issues parents and their children may experience when adjusting to a move overseas. (eg. response to grief, the transition cycle, what to expect, forming an identity and sense of belonging)
If you are concerned with your child not settling well after a couple of weeks, do contact their class teacher and/or the DCIS counsellor to discuss the situation. We are always available to help.
Our next Parent Workshop will take place on Tuesday, 3rd September, 8.45am, on the topic Secondary Assessment and Reporting.
