Dear DCIS Parents,

The 2019-2020 academic year is now in full swing. It is always amazing to see how quickly the new students settle in! I would like to thank our new parents for their support and our returning students for helping their new friends feel welcome and part of the DCIS community.

Congratulations to last year’s Year 11 students on their fantastic GCSE results. We are very proud of their achievements. This year 78% of our students achieved five GCSEs between 4-9 (C-A**), with 21% achieving five or more GCSEs between 7-9 (A-A**). Attainment is only one measure of how our students have performed and we are proud that our school has supported students on average to achieve almost half of a grade better progress than they were expected to achieve. The results are testament to the resilience and determination of our talented students and staff and the support of our parent body.

We will hold our first Parent Workshop of the term tomorrow, Tuesday 27th August, 8.45am-9.30am in Cooper Hall. Our counsellor Ian Moody will lead the workshop Living in Singapore – Tips for Settling in, focussing on transitions and reactions to change, such as a relocation. We hope to see our new parents there!

Ms Lebihan and our Primary School staff look forward to welcoming all Primary parents to this year’s Curriculum Evening. The evening will start in Cooper Hall with a presentation of the Primary team and our Primary Curriculum and then we will split up into year groups for more year group specific information. Please note that there are two sessions as lined out in the attached Curriculum Evening letter.

I enjoyed meeting our Years 7-8 and our Nursery and Reception parents during last week’s two coffee mornings. The coffee mornings are a great opportunity to connect with other parents in your class and to meet our leadership team. This Thursday, 29th August, 8.45am we will welcome parents of students in Years 9 and 10 to the Red Dot Restaurant and on Friday, 30th August, 8.45am, we look forward to seeing our Years 1 and 2 parents in the Main Canteen.

We had our first week of sports trials last week. Well done to all triallists! This week the PE Department will run the second week of trials, for more information about sports and timings, please refer to the Parent Portal and the Sports Calendar on our website.

Dover Court Association are busy with the preparations for the Welcome Picnic on Saturday, 4-7pm. If you are able to help out during the event, please send them an email: dovercourtassociation@gmail.com I look forward to seeing you there!


Mr Christopher Short 
Principal
