A week in the life of DBIS

Head of School

The raging heat of the last five days has not deterred our sports girls and boys from successfully competing in a range of events.

In particular, our U12 Boys football teams represented the school with distinction yesterday in the Hong Kong Championships at Kings Park. I know you will want to join me in congratulating both the A and B teams on securing 4th and 2nd positions respectively. Additionally, our Primary FOBISIA team is competing this week at Shrewsbury International School in Bangkok, and I am anticipating some excellent results from all involved. 
On Monday it was a real joy to be present for the Primary Music Recital in the Globe Theatre. Over forty young musicians performed an eclectic mix of pieces for a very appreciative audience. The evening was a testament to the children’s talent and dedication. It was also very pleasing for all the staff involved in the burgeoning instrumental programme at DBIS. On behalf of the children and the school community, I wanted to thank the DBIS Music Department and the fourteen or so peripatetic teachers who support the children in their endeavours.  We are now looking forward to Creative Arts Week as this promises to be an excellent opportunity for the school to celebrate the importance of creative expression in many forms. 
Finally, I wanted to make you aware that the School Council met at DBIS this week to discuss a variety of issues including the school budget and our strategic development, improvement and operations plan (attached HERE). We also had the opportunity to visit the North Plaza to review the ongoing Senior School refurbishments and set up. With this in mind, I am pleased to report that the work is progressing well and we are confident that the facility will be ready for Year 12 lessons as part of the school’s opening routine in August. 
Please let me know if you have any questions about this or any other of the school’s ongoing development. 
Best wishes for the weekend ahead.
Paul Tough
Head of School
