A week in the life of DBIS

Head of School

Despite the high pollution levels of last week and the recent cold winter winds life at school has continued at an exhilarating pace. 

Highlights have included Secondary’s latest Award for Young People (AYP) hike, Year 3 children’s visit to the theatre in preparation for their show later this month, Year 6 experiencing a memorable day at the Volvo Ocean Village and Year 1 and 2 children’s brilliant effort at our annual Sports Day. 

We are now eagerly anticipating tomorrow’s events as Friday promises to be a memorable day in the DBIS calendar with RockMob and the Lantau Paddle taking place. I know you will want to join me in extending the school’s best wishes to Mr Jonny Haines and Mr Tim Tait as they embark on their epic journey around Lantau Island. Children and staff across the school are looking forward to tracking our intrepid environmentalists over the weekend and early next week.

I also wanted to congratulate our Secondary girls' and boys' basketball teams for competing with distinction at Discovery College last night. In particular, well done to the U16 girls' team who won their game and will be competing for a gold medal in their final league game next week. 

Thank you to all the parents and staff who took some time to respond to the school’s recent stakeholder survey. Over 350 parents and 100 staff responded to the study with a vast amount of useful information gleaned by the school’s leadership team. Once we have evaluated all the feedback, I will make the community aware of emergent themes and our intended next steps.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the above, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes for the weekend.
