Kobe Club
We are very happy to announce that the schools 110 year anniversary party will be on Saturday the 18th April.

Tokyo Olympics Podium Project
DSKI students and families have a chance to be directly involved in the Tokyo Olympics by donating plastic containers such as shampoo bottles, detergent and softener bottles, etc. to be recycled into the podiums for this summer's Olympic games!

Terracycle and P&G are working together with the Tokyo Olympic Committee on this project to bring awareness to world's plastic lesson. A Terracycle representative reached out to us at DSKI to be a part of this project as some of their members had visited our Grade 2 class last year.

A collection box has been placed in the school's entrance area for you to drop off used plastic containers, any used containers from any brand are acceptable. The boxes will be in the entrance area until the last week of February and then they will be collected and shipped off to literally support the winning athletes of the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer.

Lower Primary Lunches Room (Pre-School - Grade 2) 
From Monday lower primary school will have a slight change, and instead of eating in the lunch room, they will eat in the classrooms with their teachers. The reason is that we have a lot of young students in the room right now, and we feel that the space is just not suitable for that number. So we have made the change to provide a more pleasant lunch experience.

Morning Arrival
We will be going back to the arrival system we have previously used, from Monday - students will need to line up at the main gate. Not the yard gate.

We have had too many instance of students moving away from the yard gate and going to play away from the school area. 

Visitor Book - Important
From Monday we want to ask all visitors to sign in at the office and receive a visitor pass for identification. Not including parents, we know who you all are! 

Please ask any visiting friends or relatives who are not known to us, to sign in. 

Also anyone other than parents who are here to collect a child, for example a new babysitter or visiting uncle.
