Many thanks to those of you who joined us this morning for the first of our forums on the DOT Plan. We started with EYFS and received some lovely feedback on the work teachers are doing and some great suggestions on how we can make the process easier for families, with the universal acknowledgment of the role parents need to play, especially with younger children.

The forums continue this week for those who have signed up and we will send out a further questionnaire for all parents on Friday.

We know that DOT can’t replace the full classroom based experience but we also know that our dedicated team of teachers will help bridge this current period of time and ensure children continue their progress over the coming months so that doesn’t impact on their continued development in any area of the curriculum. I have really enjoyed joining a variety of Zoom sessions over the last few days and seeing the enthusiasm shown by children in this challenging situation.

A few of the other International School Heads and myself have been in contact with CPE about the possibility of small groups of students being back in the school next week. We have yet to receive any official guidance but I will update you once I do.

Congratulations to Harriet in Year 6 who was Runner Up in the recent FOBISIA Short Story Competition with her story "In to the Woods". The registration for the Secondary Drama Festival is now closed and we look forward to seeing the entries during the Virtual Drama Festival later this month. On Friday we will celebrate Diversity Day, if you haven't submitted your poster there is still time. Please email our Communications Team, who are helping us compiling the material, by Wednesday the latest: communications@dovercourt.edu.sg

I hope you have a good week.
