It is with much excitement that we announce the DHS play for 2013. DHS will be presenting the Lion King in the third term. With over 50 auditions for main character roles, the task of selecting the cast proved incredibly difficult. It must be mentioned that our school is filled with very talented learners and beautiful voices. Those learners who did not make the final cast were not for lack of talent, but rather lack of enough roles. As a result, there will be a large number of extras in the play. Congratulations to the following learners who received the main roles:SA Athletics
Mlondi Shoba, Catherine Willis-Smith, Nqaba Mngomezulu, Lianca Congdon, Kwanda Shabalala, Felicia de Beer, Siphumelele Gumede, Lungile Kunene, Malwande Mngadi, Nelisa Mtshali, Kurt Estrice, Wanele Zulu, Sifundiswa Phiri, Nokuphila Dlamini, Siqalala Shandu and Atiyyah Ameen. As educators, we occasionally think that some learners tend to behave like animals in the classroom, so it will be quite amusing to see how well they can really act like animals!
Jonathan Benjamin represented KZN at the SA Athletics Meeting held in Germiston from 20-23 March. He took part in the Octathlon and placed first in the 1000m event and ninth overall! Well done Jonathan! We commend you for this outstanding achievement and your continued dedication to your sport! Fishing

Die Helpende Hande Groep het 'n besoek afgelê aan die Eventide Ouetehuis en die tyd saam met die senior burgers terdeë geniet. Hulle het die voorreg gehad om een van die inwoners, wat 94 jaar oud is, te ontmoet. Sy het haar lewenservaringe van so ver terug as 1960, toe sy op Hoërskool Dundee was, met hulle gedeel. Die skoliere het ook 'n voormalige nasionale rugbyspeler ontmoet. Eetgoed is uitgedeel en die seniors se harte is verwarm met sang van die leerders. Hierdie ondervinding het 'n goeie gevoel by die leerders sowel as by die seniors gelaat en ons moedig meer van ons kinders aan om by hierdie projek betrokke te raak. Die groep vra hierdie kwartaal skenkings van nie-bederfbare voedsel, ou klere en komberse wat vir behoeftiges uitgedeel kan word. Reminders
DHS would like to remind all learners that while 1 May is a public holiday, we expect you back at school on 2, 3 May, wearing your winter uniform. To our parents, the AGM is on 2 May and starts at 18:00. We hope to see you there! On Saturday, 4 May, DHS will be playing a home game against Vryheid High School.
