Next School Year Dates
We would like to take the opportunity to share our dates for next school year. You can find them on our website here.

Student Led Conferences
10th - 14th June
Soon we will have our Student Led Conferences and you will be receiving an invitation from your homeroom teacher.

This is an opportunity for the students to have a chance to show parents what they have been doing in their units of inquiry,
single subject lessons and in the classrooms in general. The preparation for this is very much giving the responsibility to the students.
Letting the students decide what the classroom will look like and what the activities and learning experience are which will be set up
for the parents to enjoy!

The Lion King Drama Production
Thursday 20th June
7.00pm (Doors open at 6.45pm)
Grade 3 and 4 will be presenting The Lion King as the culminating project for their year-long drama unit (How We Express Ourselves).

This production is open to all DSKI families, friends and previous students. Please come along and enjoy the show, our students and teachers have worked really hard and our PTA has done an excellent job making some really super costumes so it will be a fantastic night for all!

We would like to invite all families to join us for the End of Year Party to celebrate a successful and busy school year together,
say farewell to families and staff who are leaving us and of course a big congratulations to our graduates!

This year our program will be lead by our clubs, featuring performances from Karate, Ballet and Baton, videos from skateboarding,
soccer, cricket, gymnastics and basketball. We will have static displays from all the others, to show you just what great things our
students do after our lessons end.

The schedule for the day will be as follows:

8.45 am - Wake - Up Shake - Up

We will need your help!
From 11:55 am you are invited to join other families and staff for a buffet style lunch. Each class will be responsible for
bringing food to share. Look at the list below to find your child's class.

Please make sure you provide enough food for 4 - 5 people. If you are bringing more guests, kindly provide an extra portion
for them. Your child can bring the food to school in the morning and hand it over in the
hallway to the PTA.
Alternatively, parents can bring the food with them before the start of the program.

● Pre-K & Pre-school Drink(2Lx2) & fruits
● Kindergarten Rice or bread
● G1, 2 & 3 Main dishes
● G4 Desserts
● G5 & 6 Salad

Please also bring a picnic mat to sit on in the outside area.
If the parents have more than one child in our school, they should go with the younger child's grade food/drink. Please put your name on
any containers you would like returned to you at the end of the day. We want to prevent dishes being lost to the busy day.

When dropping off food in the morning, please also include ice packs to keep your contribution cool. PTA will set up tables in the hallway
for the food to be placed on from 8:30 am. After the buffet is finished, remember to take leftover plates, cups, and other items home.

Car Parking
We have had a call from the police recently asking us to remind our parents not to park on the road outside school for long periods of time. If you are staying for more than drop off, please could you use the pay car park opposite.
