Dear DCIS Parents,

It was great to see so many of you here for orientation last week, many thanks for your kind words on the refurbishment and improvements we have made over the summer. Our admin team has worked incredibly hard with our contractors to complete almost all our projects by today. I am very grateful to Mr Bull, our Head of Secondary, for all his hard work with the new Secondary building. The building certainly is the addition that we needed in order for our Secondary school to grow even stronger. We look forward to showing it to you over the coming weeks. The new Sports Hall will be finished by the end of the month and will be used by both Primary and Secondary students. 

Thank you for your patience during car drop off this morning. We are aware that the new pedestrian crossing does affect the traffic flow and with the start of term across the schools on Dover Road we expect the traffic to be slightly heavier than normal during the first week.

A reminder that the ECA registration for Term 1 is now open and will be available until 5.00pm, 22nd August. Please do take the time to review and choose the ECA options with your children.

We will commence our Coffee Mornings this week and look forward to welcoming parents of students in Years 7 and 8 to the Red Dot Restaurant on Thursday 22nd August, 8.30 am and Nursery and Reception parents to the Canteen on Friday 23rd August, 8.30am. A schedule of upcoming Coffee Mornings can be found on the Parent Portal and in the calendar on the web site.

At the start of every academic year we look for Parent Representatives to help support fellow parents, students and the class teacher. The role is supported by DCIS and the DCA Parent Association and is important for helping everyone get settled in their new class. The role can be shared by two parents and you can also be a representative for more than one class. If you are interested, please sign up here:

https://www.nordangliaeducation.com/our-schools/singapore/parent-representatives

Our first Parent Workshop of the year will be held on Tuesday 27th August, 8.45am-9.30am in Cooper Hall. The topic is Living in Singapore – Tips for settling in and will be led by our counsellor Mr Moody. We look forward to seeing our new parents there.

Finally, a reminder that our parent association, the DCA, will hold their annual Welcome Picnic on Saturday 31st August, 4.00pm to 7.00pm, it is always a well-attended event and a great way to meet and catch up with other families.

We certainly enjoy having your children back in school, the positive buzz around our campus today promises for a great year! I wish you all the best for the coming week.

Principal
