Dear DCIS Parents,

I am in the UK this week, interviewing teachers for the 2019/2020 academic year. Each year NAE hosts a recruitment event in London so that our senior leaders can meet and handpick the staff who will be joining us in August. I will be back in school next Monday.

Last week we were delighted to welcome violinist and Juilliard curriculum specialist Jessica Meyer to DCIS to spend two days with us. As part of the Juilliard collaboration we receive visitors to school who lead music lessons, coach our young musicians and also deliver training to our teaching staff. Jessica’s visit was highly appreciated by all, I met a couple of Year 4 students after her performance who told me that they never knew that the violin was such a cool instrument.

On Monday and Tuesday we aired the parent version of the Screenagers movie, it was very thought provoking and sparked conversations amongst the parents who attended. Our Secondary School will be watching the student version on Tuesday 29thJanuary and we are finalising a date and time for our year 6 students. The student version is recommended for children aged 10 and above. My thanks to the DCA for funding this opportunity.

I would also like to thank The Primary PE Team for leading a very successful year 2 swim gala last week, our swimmers were outstanding in the pool and thoroughly enjoyed the festival atmosphere! It was great to see so many parents poolside, cheering on the children.

The first Year 4 group will be heading out on their first Residential trip away from Singapore on Wednesday morning. We hope that they have an amazing time on their trip and bring back lots of stories and memories.

On Friday, 25thJanuary the Term 2 ECAs commence. We always start our extra-curricular activities on a Friday so that the Friday before half-term is a 3pm finish. This allows those families who are going away for the break a chance to leave right after school.

Our Secondary students in Years 7-9 and 11RL have their disco on Friday, 6.30pm-8.30pm. Tickets will be distributed tomorrow.


Have a great week.

Mr. Christopher Short 
Principal
