New playground opening!
The playground is rocketing along and we are told it will be handed to us on Feb 15. Obviously, the current kids are going to want to get on it ASAP so we are going to open it that afternoon so that it's good to go the following morning for our students. 

The 2020 Student Council did a power of work around developing the playground so they will join us and 'cut the ribbon' at 4pm on Monday February 15. 

Our current students are of course welcome to join us too, but please be aware that once we cut the ribbon we'll be heading off for refreshments with the 2020 School Council, and as such the playground will not be supervised. We, therefore, ask that DNI students who come to the opening are accompanied by an adult. 

Missing Cell Phone
Did you visit Adventure Outfitters last Thursday (28th January)? A white Apple i-phone went missing between 3:20-4:10pm and the owner is still hopeful it has been scooped into someone's purchase and will reappear.

Please let us know if you find it, or have been wondering where it came from :)

HPV vaccination programme
The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination programme will be offered to all year 8 students at school this year.

On Thursday 18 February, our Public Health Nurse associated with DNI will be doing an education session on the vaccinations to the year 8 students. At that session, students will be given a consent form to take home to their parents/caregivers. If you do not wish for your child to partake in the education session please contact the Office (  

Please read the consent form carefully, fill it out in pen and return it to school ASAP, even if you do not consent for your child to be vaccinated at school.

No student will be vaccinated without their parent/caregiver’s consent.

The HPV vaccination is also available free of charge through your practice nurse or doctor up to their 26th birthday. Delaying the vaccine may mean your child needs more injections to be protected, as people aged 15 years and older need three injections.

For any further information please phone the Public Health Nurse for your school, or look up
