ESF Choral Concert

850 students across ESF primary schools where there on the evening. One person in the audience mentioned afterwards that when the students started to sing their first song they 'got the shivers'.


Michael opened the evening conducting the first song, with Nicole Lau a DC Y13 student also having the opportunity to conduct one of the songs.


A massive THANK YOU to Michael for the excellent performance on Friday at the ESF Choral Concert. Also, thanks to Kim Ward for supporting the choir over the year and helping Michael out for the day on Friday.

Farewell...

Sadly we say goodbye to Angie Liang this week. She has worked closely with the Chinese team in her EA role, and I know that they will miss having her as part of their team.

We wish Angie a big thanks for her effort and commitment during her time at DC.

May 22 CPD - Planning Committee

We have one more CPD day coming up on May 22 for primary teachers and EA's.

Traditionally this has been a day to look at our POI, upcoming school priorities, planning in new teams and more.


I would love to explore opportunities for another way to approach this day, other things to include, a different structure to the day etc...


We are aiming to have the primary teachers and EA's coming away from the day feeling;

• energised

• excited

• connected


If you think you can provide that outcome, I would love to work with you to co-construct this day.


Drop me an email to express your interest.
