A big hello to the parents, teachers and students of DBIS.
As your newly elected PTSA Chair I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. A mother of two daughters, I am in the unusual (though far from unique) situation of having a child at each of the two big international schools in Discovery Bay. I’m happy to say that the benefits of this decision far outweigh the challenges that it has presented so far and being a member of two school communities has certainly enriched my life in ways that I would not have predicted.
Having chaired the DCPTA for the past two years and (almost) completed my term there, I am now stepping with some trepidation into the huge gap left when Sara Shaw stepped down from the role at DBIS. Sara is a pretty tough act to follow but I am blessed to have inherited a brilliantly organized committee with passionate, devoted and knowledgeable members to support me in my efforts.

Ex-officio members - Head - Paul Tough - Head Boy & Girl - Steven Keating & Ailie Ikeda
