Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,

I hope the excitement of the arrivals of our guests from America and North Korea didn’t inconvenience you too much. There was quite a buzz around the campus this morning as I talked to students about what was going on this week. We didn’t have any disruption to buses this morning but this may be different tomorrow when Sentosa is the location for the actual summit. As mentioned last week, we have reinforced our security procedures this week so please ensure that you have your pass on you or sign in at Reception.

In amongst all of the goings on yesterday our Alpine Expedition Team of intrepid Year 8 and 9 students headed off to Switzerland for a week of team-building, planning and hiking in the Alps and making new friendships with NAE students from across world. We look forward to seeing and hearing how they are getting on throughout the week.

I am very grateful to the DCA for the Family Sports Day on Saturday. The atmosphere on the campus was excellent and all the participants I spoke to really enjoyed the opportunity to get involved, although I did meet some parents this morning who were suffering a little bit from their exertions on the sports field over the weekend!

Thank you to Mr. Baines for organising a brilliant set of STEAM Challenges last week around the theme of the Future of Cars, some of the project work taking place in the classrooms was very thought provoking. 

I am looking forward to seeing many of you at school this week and next for the annual swim galas, I do hope that you enjoy watching your children demonstrating their aqua skills and representing their houses in what promises to be a closely fought competition!

Have a great week.

Mr. Christopher Short 
Principal

Important Reminder from The British High Commission


British High Commission Singapore Logo

Summer holidays are fast approaching but there is still time to make sure you have no passport disasters at check-in!

Many countries in our Asian region require at least six months validity remaining on a passport in order for entry to be granted. Airlines are not flexible and even one day less than six months validity means you will not be able to board the plane. Families busy with holiday preparations can easily overlook this.

The Consular Section of the British High Commission recommends these twoeasy steps:

  1. Check the expiration date of all family members’ passports now.
  2. Renew any passports with less than six months validity (at the date you wish to travel) online with Her Majesty’s Passport Office.  www.gov.uk/government/organisations/hm-passport-office

A new passport can take up to 4 weeks to process. If you apply now, you will be in plenty of time for your summer holidays!

Lunch Service: Sodexo

Please be advised that a representative from Sodexo will be available every Friday from 7.30-8.30am to assist with any queries regarding Bracelet IDs, registrations and top ups.

You can access the Campus Online page at this link.
