The 2018 Alan Dick Community Blast
CDNIS has recognised Alan Dick and his contribution to the school every spring since 2010. This year the event will involve US kids visiting LS classrooms to enjoy a variety of activities. These will include watching a video about Alan, dancing his favorite Hokey Pokey Dance and learning a few others, and enjoying mini-cupcakes. A montage video will be shared widely among the CDNIS community after the event.
Monopoly Games Have Arrived
The CDNIS bespoke Monopoly games have arrived. They are available to be picked up at the 9/F office, and delivered to those who selected that option. When picking up your game, please provide the name and email address/phone number on the original order. Order your game today.

Fire Alarm Procedures
Do you know what to do if the fire alarm rings? If you are in the 6/F cafeteria or perhaps enjoying a latte at the Maple Cafe, the evacuation route for parents and others is to go across the pitch towards the LLAC. From there, turn left up the stairs and follow the signs out to Nam Long Shan. If you have any questions, email the Health and Safety team.
