Welcome to the Week Beginning 24th February 2020

Dear DCIS Parents,

Welcome back, I hope that you had a lovely break. As I wrote in my email yesterday, we are restarting the ECAs today, something that I know our students are very happy about. We are also looking at options to reschedule postponed events, we will keep you updated.

The Global Campus Visual Arts competition is open, the theme this year is the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. To learn more, watch this video created by the Primary Global Campus Champions. A guide on how to access the Global Campus can be found here.

Thank you to those of you who have already shared your dance videos with us! If you are yet to, please watch the tutorial by Ms Hughes and Mr Liperis and have a go at home. We'd love to see our Dover Court community dancing, so do share any videos with your class teachers.

I am looking forward to the DCA's Quiz Night this Friday and hope to meet many of you there. The DCA are also planning their Family Movie Night that will take place on Saturday 28th March, the current situation permitting. The form to vote for the movie to be screened is now open and can be found here. 

Many thanks to all the parents who have completed the new Student Travel Declaration, we ask all families to complete this, one per child, by Friday 28th February. Please note that this is a government requirement. As you know we have previously asked families to fill in Travel Plans on our Google Doc. These have proved very useful as other areas are identified as virus hotspots. As such we would be grateful if families could update the Travel Plans document (click here) as their travel is planned.

As you may have seen, we have created a Health Advisory page on our website. All school communication regarding the COVID-19 virus can be found there, along with some useful resources. All this can also be found in the Health Advisory folder on the Parent Portal.

Finally, do watch our hand-wash tutorial together with your children. We have been so impressed with how willing all children are to wash their hands and use the hand sanitisers that are placed around school. 

Have a great week!
