A week in the life of DBIS

Head of School

I hope everyone enjoyed this week’s Public Holiday.

The weather during the last week or so has been glorious, and it has been lovely to see the School campuses at their best in the sunshine. Using the campuses to showcase the creative talents of our students has been a feature this year. I’m sure we would all agree that the various murals and artwork appearing on the Primary and Secondary School’s façade have had an uplifting effect upon the school environment. Equally, the beautiful front garden and wilderness area of the Early Years provide a welcoming and engaging backdrop for learning. We hope to continue this development over the rest of this term and into next year with the Senior School campus also developing its unique character.

With only four and a half weeks remaining of this school year the pace of life at DBIS continues to be maintained. There is no more significant misnomer than the often quoted belief that “schools slow down” towards the end of the summer term. In the midst of report writing, examinations and planning for the School next year students and staff at DBIS are looking forward to various transition events, graduations, awards ceremonies, sporting competitions and of course Creative Arts Week. In addition, FOBISIA events feature prominently in the school calendar for the remaining weeks of the term. Congratulations again to the secondary students who represented the School at last weekend’s FOBISIA festival in Jakarta.  The students were a credit to the School and  enjoyed the experience. The FOBISIA “baton” passes over to the coming week to the DBIS U11 FOBISIA squad who will be competing in Phuket very soon.  
Finally, I wanted to draw attention to a community event taking place  at DBIS this Sunday. As many of you are aware, May is “Helper Appreciation Month”, and DBIS is pleased to be hosting another screening of the documentary “The Helper”. For more information regarding the screening, please access the following link HERE.
Best wishes for the weekend ahead.
