A week in the life of DBIS
I am sure we all agree that sport’s potential to promote inclusion in schools and society at large is significant.
This is undoubtedly the case at DBIS where we value the empowering role sport plays for students as it can help develop self-confidence, skills and long lasting friendships. Additionally, as an inclusive school, we recognise the importance of making sure that every student has the opportunity to take part in every aspect of school life including sport. The School’s annual "Sports For All” Festival which took place yesterday was a clear illustration of this. The Festival was a great success, and it was a joy to see over one hundred students from eight Hong Kong schools in attendance. Please find here a LINK to the names of the Schools. Thank you to my colleagues in the Inclusion and PE/Sports departments for making the day such an enjoyable and successful occasion for the students involved.
Last week’s Secondary Production was also outstanding. It was incredible to see the split cast perform William Golding’s work with such maturity, focus and passion. Congratulations to all the students, staff and parents involved. Follow this LINK to the cast.
Last night the School Advisory Committee met for the third time this term. At the meeting which was held at the Early Years Campus we discussed teacher recruitment, early years developments, the School’s approach to internationalism and the success of today’s Sports For All Festival.

This week the final stages of the Head of School recruitment process took place at DBIS. Members of the school community including parents, staff, students and the School Council enjoyed meeting the candidates, and they were impressed with their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm. The School Supervisor, Julian Wyatt, will make an announcement shortly on the final appointment.
With only one week of the school term remaining we are now looking forward to tomorrow’s new “Get Redressed” event, the Year 1 show and of course the christmas community extravaganza, Carols on the Pitch on the 13th.
Best wishes for the weekend ahead.
Head of School
