A week in the life of DBIS

Head of School

As the adage goes, ‘time flies when you are having fun’, and this term has positively flown by at DBIS!

As we head into the last week of term, there has been no time for slowing down with a series of brilliant events taking place across the school. During the previous seven days, sporting competition has maintained its strong profile with DBIS students competing successfully in various football, basketball, netball, hockey and rugby tournaments.  Learning beyond the school campus has also been a feature of the last seven days with students in Primary and Secondary visiting fantastic locations including Victoria Peak, Disney and the Museum of Coastal Defence at Lei Yue Mun. Thank you to all the staff and parents who have accompanied the students on the vast array of activities which have taken place over the last week and the entire action-packed term.  

I also wanted to acknowledge the generosity and kindness of all the children and adults contributing to this week’s second hand gift sale. As I have said before, our school is a great community to be part of because we try our best to model the values of compassion and selflessness through our daily actions.

A big thank you to the parents and committee members who have organised this evening’s PTSA Christmas Quiz. Having such a supportive group of parents is fantastic. I believe the PTSA now has a significant list of volunteers. However, I’m sure the committee would appreciate even more. Please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the PTSA committee if you are in a position to help.

We are now looking forward to next week’s annual community Christmas Concert, “Carols on the Pitch.” The concert has become a real highlight of the school calendar as it provides us with an opportunity to celebrate the joy of Christmas through music and song with the broader Discovery Bay community. We look forward to welcoming you all to our unique community event celebrating Christmas.

Best wishes for the week ahead.
