A week in the life of DBIS

Head of School

It was fantastic to see the children developing an understanding of internationalism through a variety of interesting sessions across the school last week.

In particular, it was fascinating to see how they investigated and expressed their personal stories and identities in such creative ways. Last week was an obvious illustration of the school’s effort to ensure all students understand the histories, cultures, beliefs and perspectives of the many individuals who make up our diverse community. Our intention is to build upon this further and embed opportunities for developing internationalism within the day-to-day life of the school.

As part of the week, I was very pleased to see the school extend a welcome to many of the children’s "aunties" and "helpers." As we are all aware, foreign domestic helpers in Hong Kong are our "unsung heroes" and it is crucial that the children at DBIS and we as a wider school community recognise their enormous contribution to our lives. I’m delighted therefore that this term and next we will be providing our children's "aunties" with the use of the school facilities for a variety of educational and recreational activities such as swimming, singing, and instructional workshops.

Best wishes for the weekend ahead.
