On Thursday, 07 February, DHS held its annual interhouse swimming gala. The rain fortunately held back long enough for us to complete all of the events and it was a very successful evening. Firstly, thank you to our supporters in the stand, especially the hostel learners , for behaving so well and truly amping up the school spirit! Well done to all the swimmers; you really made us proud of you, whether you came first or last!
