Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,

Thank you once again for supporting your children during Sports' Week, it was such a fantastic week with all students demonstrating their achievements on the track and field.

Congratulations to our students who were the DCIS winners of the Creative Writing Competition; Ines (6CP) and Aria (9C). Their writing will be published in the anthology and they will each receive a copy of this book. Well done to the other shortlisted winners, who also really impressed the judges. These were Aswin (6JO), Christina (5VS), Dylan (5MS) and Tara (4MD) for the 8 - 11 Age Category. The shortlisted students in the 11 - 14 Age Category were Chiara (7C), Shivangini (9D), Suhani (8D) and Maia (7D).

Do look out for details of the upcoming Lego competition and also the Global Campus video in which Jack Odey explains how to use the Global Campus Online website.

Have a great week.

Mr. Christopher Short
Principal

Lunch Service: Sodexo

As previously communicated the main cafeteria is not accepting cash payments, but the DCIS Café will continue to accept cash. Although, the cash facility in the DCIS Café is really designed to accommodate parents for occasional use, we recommend that all students are signed up for a Campus Online account. This limits cash on site and allows parents to track purchases that students make during the day through their Campus Online accounts. You can access the Campus Online page at this link.

  • It provides an opportunity for NAE students across the globe to gain a greater understanding of the artists career, art, training and experience as well as developing their curiosity and cultural awareness skills.

  • Details on the ‘Artist’ (including a photo, bio and links to examples of work) are posted on Global Campus Online and students are given the chance to post questions that they would like the artist to answer.

  • The artist will answer up to 10 questions on video, which will be posted online for students to review.

Global Goals Resource Centre

Have a great week everyone. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have, and keep in contact! We love to see and hear what you have been up to with the Global Campus. 

Many thanks,

Parent Support Network

We are pleased to launch the first Parent Support Network meeting.  This is a chance to meet up with other parents informally over a coffee and share experiences and support amongst friends.  We're facilitating the first of these meetings, providing a space for parents to meet and will be inviting along a child psychologist to offer advice about any issues that may be concerning parents with their own children, outside of school.  The network is independent of the school and open up to all parents of children with additional needs. The first network meeting will be held on Monday 26th February at 8:45am in the DCIS cafe.  We hope you can come along.
