Last year was the first ever SIMOC held in Singapore with over 400 students participating, however this year over 750 students attended the event from 15 different countries all around the world, including four Junior School students from DCS. Students are invited to Singapore if they receive a Bronze, Silver or Gold award in the SASMO contest, which is held in April at DCS.

SIMOC is a unique concept of mathematics competition which not only tests students’ ability to solve mathematical problems on pen and paper but also tests their ability to work as a team to play interactive mathematical games and solve puzzles.

SIMOC consists of three categories: 1 individual written Math Olympiad Contest for grades 2 to 10 (Primary 2 to Secondary 4) and two team based challenges – Maths Warriors Competition and Mind Sports Challenge. Henry Org, the founder of the Singapore and Asian Math Olympiad (SASMO), wanted to focus on team building and organized the Maths Warriors Competition so students from different countries and grade levels competed against each other. The students learnt lots of new ways of solving problems. It was a fantastic event.

All of our students walked away with medals and happy faces! Josh was the overall champion in the grade 4 category, obtaining a perfect score for the individual written contest. Congratulations!

If your child is interested in signing up to SASMO, we have CCA training sessions for Years 3-6 during Term 1 & 2.

Year 6 had their annual residential last week. This year a new venue was arranged - San Shan Island, near Suzhou. Four days of activities and camping saw the students returned exhausted but exhilerated on Thursday afternoon. Many thanks to the staff of The Dragon Trip, our own DCS staff and the wonderful Year 6 students for making the trip a great success. Memories of San Shan Dao will remain in our minds for many years to come.

Following a set of excellent IB results, the publication of this year’s (I)GCSE results has provided further cause for celebration. As in previous years, there are a number of exceptional achievements.

(I)GCSE results continue to be outstanding with the percentage of A*/A grades at 73%, with 99% of all grades being C or higher. 

Of all the 85 candidates, 58% recorded an average grade, greater than an A, in all subjects. The number of subject entries is also worthy of note, the average being over 10 different subjects per student. 45 of the 85 students were awarded with 8 or more A/A* on their subject entries.

We look forward to the future achievements at IB Diploma level, of the class of 2018. 

Mr. Damien Charnock, Headmaster said:
"We are again left feeling immensely proud of what our students have achieved in their external examinations. This year’s results are a tremendous tribute to the hard work of the students and their teachers. The same students have taken part in a huge range of competitive sports, dramatic productions, musical events and ensembles, community service and too many other activities to list, and yet they still make the time to excel in their academic pursuits. They never fail to amaze and impress me.”

Interview with Clarisse

How long have you studied at DCS? 
I have studied at DCS for two years - my IB years. 

What have you enjoyed about studying at DCS? 
Studying at DCS has been an amazing experience. My teachers were passionate and supportive, sparking my interest in not only the courses' content, but also on wider issues and ideas. What I also loved was the atmosphere in school: serious and hard-working in the classroom, and fun and relaxed in the IB common room. This balance made studying at DCS truly enjoyable. Moreover, I loved being able to interact and work with peers and teachers from all over the world, as every individual's unique background and experiences contributed to the creation of very insightful discussions and debates.  

Another great memory was our Graduation. The singing with the DUCKS children as well as the clapping and cheering from Junior and Senior students while we toured the school brought our school community together and illustrated DCS's collective spirit. 

What are your fondest memories? 
Something I will always remember was an experiment we carried out in Biology class, were we used micropropagation to clone cauliflower. Being able to use my knowledge of cell division and plants in this real life investigation was exciting and extremely interesting.

What subjects did you study at IB? 
I studied Higher Level Geography, Biology and Economics, and Standard Level Mathematics, Mandarin ab Initio, and English Language and Literature.

Which university do you plan to attend this year?  
I will be attending the University of Oxford.

What is your chosen degree? 
My chosen degree is Geography. 

What are your plans after university?  
After university, I would like to work in an organization that tackles the environmental and social challenges the world is facing today.

Last week, on the 21st and 22nd of April, the Lower Senior School performed ‘The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe’. We received lots of praise for our efforts, making us feel proud and honored to be a part of this production. What our audience didn’t know, however, was the hard work and hours of effort all cast and crew members put in to make our play a true success. 

When Ms. Graves first introduced this play as being a physical rendition of one of our favorite childhood stories, we were a little apprehensive yet excited about this ambitious notion. Especially daunting was the idea of Aslan as a five-person puppet. Both cast and crew were able to take this in their stride, however, and over the course of the next few months we began to piece together both the physical and dramatic elements of this production - all in all, we wouldn’t have done this any other way. 

Hours of rehearsals, both during the week and on the weekend, were occasionally tiring but provided long periods of cast bonding and theatrical creativity. In fact, rehearsals were probably the most fun and fulfilling parts of our weeks. Being able to share ideas amongst each other and adapt them to our play allowed us all to grow both on our own and in a larger group.

Over the weeks of practice rehearsals morphed from hours of creating into hours of practicing and eventually, performing dress rehearsals. As our play evolved, so did we. Our characters became more pronounced and realistic, aided by our ever-helpful crew. 

Those doing makeup and costume tirelessly worked on transforming our actors into an assortment of animals, older men and women, and of course, the White Witch. The props department was able to bring the enchanting objects of Narnia to life. One of their greatest feats was the lamppost, the symbol of Narnia and the most important landmark in the play. The tech crew also provided the perfect lighting and sounds to complement our scenes, and the backstage hands ensured that our scenes always ran smoothly and reduced the frequent flurries of panic backstage to purposeful preparation for our next scene. 

However, we would never have been able to bring together and organize both cast and crew without the instruction and support of our amazing director, Ms. Graves. She managed to take a group of students from Years 7 to 9 and transformed them into actors with the ability to put on an entire play. Her love and skillful direction of physical theater provided a strong and creative foundation for the performance. Ms. Graves allowed us to take a beloved childhood story and turn it into a spectacle worthy of remembrance, and for that we thank her dearly. The creation and performance of Narnia was an unforgettable experience and our memories of it will be cherished forever.
