Dear DCIS Parents,

Thank you to all Secondary parents who attended the Secondary Curriculum Evening last week. I would also like to thank Mr Bull and the Secondary team for their time and hard work. I am very proud of the Secondary School that we now have, the atmosphere in the new block is amazing. The Red Dot Restaurant is a fantastic place to gather and we fully understand that our students enjoy coming in early to catch up with their friends. Just a reminder that students should not be on campus before 8.00am, unless they are participating in an organised activity, such as swimming, as we are unable to supervise them due to morning meetings and planning time.

Our students Emma and Sameeksha attended the Pearson Edexcel Outstanding Learner Award ceremony last week. They were awarded prizes for their iGCSE results, Emma had achieved the highest mark in Asia in Global Citizenship and Sameeksha the highest mark in Geography in Singapore. I would also like to congratulate their teachers, Mrs Hyland and Mr Woodhall, achievements like these truly reflect the dedication and passion of our staff.

Tomorrow, Tuesday 10th September, Assistant Head of Primary Mr Tallett will lead the Parent workshop – Primary Assessment and Reporting. We look forward to seeing our Primary parents in Cooper Hall at 8.45am.

Our parent association, the DCA, will hold their AGM Wednesday 11th September in the Music Room by the Main Canteen, all parents are invited! The agenda and events calendar are attached below.

After almost three weeks of intense sports trials we have reached the last week of trials for this season, good luck to the Years 7 and 8 students who are trialling for the U13 FOBISIA Games. I would like to congratulate all students who were invited to a team after the trials and I would also like to say well done to all who did their very best in the trials but didn’t quite make it. Keep practicing and keep being active - next time it might be your turn!

Our youngest students in Nursery and Reception will be celebrating International Dot Day on Friday, I look forward to seeing lots of dots around school.

Our ECAs commence on Friday, 13th September, please note that ECA buses are only available to students from Year 2 and above.

Finally, I am pleased to announce that Maylis and Ishita in Year 12 are our two new Head Students this academic year.

 

Have a great week,

Mr Christopher Short
Principal
