With students quickly settling into the new school year, October has seen good fun and success. Some of our senior students have already begun looking ahead by visiting the Hong Kong Universities Fair hosted on our Campus. Our Grade 7 and 8 students continued building positive relationships in our Secondary Section by enjoying a fun day in the sun at Happy Valley with their teachers and peers, and taking part in friendly homeroom competitions. In addition, both Grade 9 - 12 and Grade 7 and 8 Student Councils hosted a fantastic school dance where students sported their best costumes and dance moves. Although October offered multiple opportunities for positive relationship building, it also marked the end of Season 1 sports for some of our athletes. Not only was Season 1 successful in building resilience, stamina and strength in our athletes, but it also offered our school community an opportunity to celebrate. The U14 Girls Football team ended their season with a bronze medal and great memories, and the U20 Girls Volleyball team ended Season with a gold medal, accompanied with a new DSC banner!

 

September and October started us off with an exciting year and November is sure to deliver the same. November marks the end of our Progress Reporting Period for our Grade 7 and 8 students as well as Mid-Semester Reporting for Grades 9-12. This is a great time of year for students to reflect on their strengths as learners and identify areas in which they can improve.There are a number of support systems available to our students to assist in their growth as learners and we encourage students to seek those out. Our administration and teachers also look forward to meeting with parents during Report Card Conferences this month. With reports and conferences, November will have a strong focus on academics, however, we also encourage our students to find balance as well-rounded learners by actively participating in the School community outside of the classroom. The beginning of November offers new opportunities for our Season 2 athletes and wraps up with a week full of learning, exploration and service work. Experiential Learning Week has our teachers and students preparing for an unforgettable experience. We’d like to thank our parents and guardians for their continued support as students prepare for an eventful month ahead.
