Welcome to the Week Beginning 30th September.

Dear DCIS Parents,

It is hard to believe that we have reached the last day of September.

We have two busy weeks ahead of us before the half term break. Our counsellor Mr Moody is looking forward to welcoming Primary School fathers to the launch of his Forum for Dads. Do join him tomorrow, Tuesday 1st October, 7.45am in The Lounge. This first meeting will focus on parenting younger children. The next meeting, after half term, will cover older children.

At 8.45am tomorrow we will hold a workshop for parents of children in our English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme. We look forward to seeing you in Cooper Hall.

Tomorrow evening, Tuesday 1st October, starting 6.00pm, Blue Phish will run their workshop Parenting in the Digital Age. Blue Phish joined us last year as well and the feedback I received from parents after the workshop was very positive. Blue Phish will cover topics such as threatening apps, gaming, social media, digital footprints, cyber bullying, online privacy and much more, topics that are most relevant when parenting young people today.

We are very proud of our extensive Residential Trips programme and the first year group to go on their trip this year is Year 5, who will be travelling to Sugi Island in Indonesia in November. The Year 5 Trip Information Meeting will be held Thursday 3rd October 6.00pm-6.45pm in Cooper Hall.

Students and parents in Year 9 and above that are interested in the the Global Campus Tanzania Trip are welcome to the information meeting Thursday, 3rd October, 6.00pm-7.00pm in the Music Room, by the Primary Canteen. For any questions regarding the Tanzania trip, please contact Mr Fisher: jonathan.fisher@dovercourt.edu.sg 

This year's Sports Week will commence on Friday, 4th October, with the Secondary Sports Day. Details about timings can be found on the Parent Portal, parents are invited to come along and cheer their children on! Friday 4th October is also Dyslexia Awareness Day, the day will be celebrated across the school.

A gentle reminder to those passing through the Singapore Polytechnic that scooters must be walked when on campus. 

Have a great week,

Christopher Short
