JAN-FREDERICK VAN ZYL - BEST BOY ATHLETE
Jan-Frederik is one of those athletes who just keeps on performing! On Saturday, 17 October, he participated in the Clover Athletics meeting in Bloemfontein. He was part of the invitation team from Pietermaritzburg. Many schools participated, amongst others, Grey College, Pretoria Boys High, Waterkloof, Affies, Jim Fouchè and Kempton Park.
Jan-Frederik excelled in the u/14 javelin where he threw a personal best distance of 58.81m. He achieved an amazing 945 points on the ASA table. Jan - Frederik was named the best athlete of the boys’ events and his prize was handed to him by Wade van Niekerk, who became world champion in the 400m this year.
It is such a special experience and we are incredibly proud of this young man who has really proven that hard work and passion always produce results.

ST DOMINIC’S BUNDU BASH IN UTRECHT
On Saturday, 17 October 2015, our multisport team travelled to Utrecht to compete against other schools at the annual Bundu Bash held in Utrecht. DHS had a very successful day. Our learners won many awards and we definitely had the most enthusiasm! The results were as follows:
Gabby Carter, Joshua Donaldson and Philipp Stehr came first in their age groups. Nadia Raffenberg, Deandre Pillay and Dylan Marè came second in their age groups. Keaton von Rauenstein and Rebekka Böhmer came third in their age group. DHS completely dominated the u/15 and u/17 age groups, obtaining first, second and third prizes for both boys and girls.
Christian van Dyk is really an inspiration to others. He came first overall and in his age group for this challenging event.
Mr and Mrs Carter completed the 40km Thirsti Big cycle and Mr Botha and Mrs du Plessis ran the 10km trail run. The teachers and learners really enjoyed themselves. It is always an inspiration to see how much enthusiasm young people have for sport and a healthy lifestyle.
During the October holidays, Trishen Pillay, took part in the second round of Expo, the International Science Fair, in Boksburg.
He really impressed the judges in different fields of knowledge and received a highly commended award for his project. He was also awarded the RS Raspberry Pi Prize for showing awareness and understanding of a current technological challenge and offering an innovative solution. His project was based on developing a novel ignition preventing drunken driving.
Congratulations on your achievements, Trishen!
