Dear DCIS Parents and Guardians,

Last week our students had such a busy week "Being Ambitious" both inside and outside of the classroom, from the FOBISIA Under 13 competition to the STEAM Trip to Jet Aviation.

This week sees our Year 1 students starting their IPC topic entitled "The Circus is Coming to Town" so if you see some of the youngest in our community all dressed up this week please don't be surprised!

Thank you those of you who have already completed the Parent Satisfaction Survey. For those who have not done so yet, we would be very grateful if you could take 15 minutes to share your views with us, feedback from this survey really does help shape the future of our school.

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.
