Dear DCIS Parents,

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many of you at the Welcome Picnic on Saturday. I would like to thank our parent association, the DCA for their hard work organising this event. The parent support and engagement are invaluable to us and I am very grateful that we have such an active community in our school. The Parents’ Support Network, another parent initiative, had their first meeting of the term today. This group meets the first Monday of each month and welcomes parents of children with any additional needs. Their next meeting will be Monday, 7th October.

Our Year 13 IB students started their mock examinations today. We wish them all the best for these upcoming weeks. The mocks are vitally important for the final exam preparation and the examinations next spring.

I enjoyed seeing our Nursery and Reception students transformed into superheroes today, that is one of the things that I enjoy the most as the principal of an all-through school - being able to greet both three year old Wonder Women and well-prepared 17 year olds on the same steps in the morning!

Our Parent Workshops are now up and running, we look forward to seeing our Secondary parents tomorrow morning, 8.45am in Cooper Hall for the Secondary Assessment and Reporting workshop. We are also more than halfway through this term’s Coffee Mornings. 8.45am on Thursday we will welcome our Years 11-13 parents to the Red Dot Restaurant. The Years 3 and 4 Coffee Morning will take place on Friday. See you in the Main Canteen 8.45am!

Mr Bull and his team are inviting all Secondary parents to the Secondary Curriculum Evening on Wednesday. More information about the event can be found in the email sent out last week and on the Parent Portal.

On 25th October we will be celebrating UN Day, this is our biggest event of the year. The first step in the preparations is the UN Day t-shirt competition. A reminder that all UN Day t-shirt design entries should be submitted to class teachers or form tutors by tomorrow, Tuesday 3rd September. 

The DCIS World Scholars’ Cup team is travelling to Manila together with Mrs Nesbitt later this week, we wish them the best of luck! 

Finally, a reminder that parents who wish their children to join the school in August 2020 should submit their applications by half term.


Mr Christopher Short 
Principal
