There were 6 teams interested in entering the Rotary team talk this year. After an internal DHS round, 2 teams were selected. Simethembile Sibisi, Ayanda Dlamini and Nhlalonhle Mkhonza and Attiyyah Ameen, Wandile Khumalo and Sadiyah Malek. Well done to Attiyyah, Wandile and Sadiyah for winning the first round of the Speech Contest against Sarel Cilliers with their speech "Food for thought". Unfortunately, they fell out in the second round that was held in Newcastle. They performed extremely well and received many compliments and encouraging advice. Show your strength by persevering in this discipline and by trying again next year. HOW CAN A LEARNER IMPROVE HIS MATHS?

Parents, please encourage your child by:
- Do I complete my homework every day?
- Do I listen to my teacher's explanations and instructions in class?
- Do I mark my work every day and do I make sure that I correct wrong answers?
- Do I never copy mathematical solutions from someone else?
- Do I follow up by correcting the mistakes I made in tests/exams?
- Do I know my maths rules, theories and formulae well?
- Do I work systematically?Do I do more than what my teacher expects from me? (do I, for instance, do more examples than what my teacher gave me to do?)
- Do I work through old test and exam papers?
- Do I use coloured pens to emphasize important points?
- Do I write down hints and notes next to my work?
- Do I make sure I can use my calculator correctly?
- Do I avoid carelessness?
- Do I consult with someone if I need help?
- Not teaching him other methods - it will confuse him.
- Not making comments like "I could never do maths" or "maths is hard".
- Always encouraging your child to build his confidence.Motivating your child to never give up.
