The performances are pre-recorded in front of a small audience, usually during the class’ music lesson and 8 musicians have been featured so far, playing a wide range of pieces from Schubert’s Marche Militaire to a mash-up of Green Day and Oasis. We hope that next up will be our Secondary students for ‘On the Spot’ – we are looking for performers! Please take time to tune in to our YouTube channel or access the recordings through the Parent Portal (under Documents & Files, in the At the Splat folder!) and listen, as every artist needs an audience.
The theme of performance continued into the week with our inaugural TEDx Youth being delivered by a group of Year 11, 12 and 13 students. The event was superbly organised by Sai Sure in Year 12, who had begun preparations about 12 months ago, with an obvious postponement in the middle - it was well worth the wait. To hear our students speak so eloquently, with passion and conviction, and without prompts or notes was an absolute pleasure. The talk is now being submitted to the TED Organization, we can't wait to see the final product!
This weekend I had the privilege of running a ‘Leadership with Well-Being in Mind’ workshop for a wonderful group of our teachers, which found me in school meeting so many families who were taking advantage of the school photography opportunity. It reminded me of those wonderfully busy family events at school we experienced prior to Covid-19.
Our Primary students recognised United Nation's 75th anniversary today through activities focusing on the themes ‘We work in a team because peace is our dream’, in EYFS and Key Stage 1, and ‘My ideas and beliefs have great value’, in Key Stage 2.
The Year 8 Parent Teacher Conferences will take place on Wednesday 28th October, for any questions regarding these, please contact Miss Zaayman: Bianca.Zaayman@dovercourt.edu.sg
Finally a big thanks to the DCA for the decorating that has gone on all day and will continue for the rest of the week in preparation for our Halloween Dress-up and Charity Day on Friday – hopefully another event that helps us really enjoy feeling part of the Dover Court community.
