Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,

Happy New Year and welcome back! I hope that you all had a restful break and that the students are raring to go for term two! Welcome to all the new families joining our community, we hope that you are settling in to Singapore life. We have 3 new parent coffee mornings this week, this will be a  great opportunity to meet fellow parents and Heads of School so we do hope to see you there.

Our term two ECA options system is open and will close this Friday so do take the opportunity to apply for the many available ECA activities on offer. 

Just a reminder that next week is both DCIS Photo Week and DCIS Sports Week. Separate communications will be sent about both of these annual events. The schedule for Sports Week is also outlined below.

I do hope that everyone settles in well to the new term.

Mr. Christopher Short
Principal

Year 7 - Year 9 Tic Tac Toe Homework

Tic Tac Toe Homework packs for Term 1 for Secondary School students in Year 7 to Year 9 are attached below and will be shared with students and parents this week. The Tic Tac Toe packs are also available from our Secondary School (Ages 11-16) webpage.
 

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.

GLOBAL CAMPUS COMIC BOOK COMPETITION - UNDER 8s

  • We are proud to launch an exciting new competition, exclusively for Under 8s!

  • This exciting new competition invites students aged 8 and under to create and submit an earth-saving superhero comic. The winners will have their entries published in the first ever Global Campus Comic Book!

  •  Originally developed by UNICEF, we thought this competition would be a great activity for students under 8 years old; as the UNICEF competition was only open to students aged 10 and above, we’ve adapted it to suit this younger age group.

  • Class teachers will be sharing this information with their students this term.

 Have a great week all. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have! 

Many thanks, 

The Global Campus Team


Art Department Request

The Art Department regaularly use newspaper and magazines for their projects so if you are an avid reader and have a recycling collection at home then we would be very grateful to receive any donations. The Art Department are also in desperate need of still life objects to draw. This could be anything from disused toys (doesn’t matter if they are broken) to old electrical equipment to small pieces of furniture such as stools. Anything goes!

The Great DC Bear Charity Sale

A final reminder that our student inspired DC Bears are available for purchase from School Reception for $25 with all profits being sent to charity. Read more about the sale here.
