End of Summer 2018

Dear Parents/Carers

Sports Day

Sports Day is on Monday 16th July 2018 at DSTC. Most students will be in normal lessons periods 1 and 2, with the exception of any competitors who are required to complete early morning events. All students will then go out to the field for periods 3 and 4, whether they are competing or spectating. After lunch period 5 will be normal lessons. The ‘Race for Life’ fun run is at 2.1Opm; students can choose to complete 1, 2 or 3 laps of the course. There will be a voluntary donation of £1 for the ‘Race for Life’ charity.

All students are expected to come to Sports Day in regulation PE kit- including a white college PE polo shirt, black shorts or leggings and a pair of trainers. Any students that are not appropriately dressed or poorly behaved will be sanctioned in the normal way.

Please ensure your daughter is prepared for the warm weather with a sun hat, sun cream and plenty of water. The spectator areas are on the DSTC field so a small picnic rug may be suitable for your daughter and friends to sit on. There will be an Ice Cream van present during the event so your daughter may wish to bring a small amount of cash.

If your daughter has a health issue that we are not already aware of that may affect her participation at Sports Day please telephone to let us know.

Community Day

Wednesday 18th July 2018 is our annual Community Day 1Oam-2pm. Students should go straight to their placements and will be dismissed from these at the end of the day. Assemblies will be held this Friday to finalise arrangements.

End of Term Arrangements

The last day of term is Friday 20th July 2018. Students will be dismissed before lunch at 12 noon; if your daughter receives ‘Free School Meals’ a packed lunch can be arranged for her to take away. This will need to be collected at break time. Please let us know by completing and returning the below slip to the main office. Students should attend the last day in full
uniform.

The Autumn term will begin on Friday 31st August 2018 for Year 7 and 12 only. The rest of the college will return on Monday 3rd September 2018.

Please find attached the term dates for 2018-19.

End of Summer Term 2018

DSTC would like to wish you all a very enjoyable, safe and relaxing summer break.

Yours sincerely
Mrs Anne Davis
Principal
