EG JANSEN REDENAARS
The annual EG Jansen Debate Competition took place on 3 March. Christien Muller and Doné Oosthuizen represented the DHS junior team and Edrich Nortjé and Megan Peddie the senior team.
Unfortunately neither team managed to get through to the next round. Well done to these learners!
On Monday, 7 March, DHS hosted the Playhouse Company for a production of ‘Othello’( the matric prescribed play) for matric learners in our area. The learners were in awe of the actors as they brought this Shakespearean classic to life.
Thank you to Mrs Du Plessis and Mrs Sewmangal, for once again arranging this opportunity for our learners.
The conditions were hot and it was very dusty but everyone had fun and we are grateful to have healthy bodies and adventurous minds! The following learners took part in the relevant events:
Full Individual Swim: Christian van Dyk and Mr and Mrs Carter
Individual Half Distance (swim): Gabby and Aidan Carter, Michael van der Merwe, Dylan Maré, Huzaifah Mahomed, Megan Peddie, Janco Kotze, Keaton von Rauenstein, Duane Lauwrens, Kwanele Mhlongo, Bryce Sharp and Abby Box.
Full Individual Paddle: Joshua and Keagan Donaldson
Full Distance teams: The Spitting Lamas (Caide Sharp, Mikhail Ayub and Phumi Gumede), Jalopeno Hotties (Nadia Raffenberg, Bandile Malinga and Sisonke Nkabinde), DHS Trail Dragons (Thealize Jacobs, Tyler Fraser and Philipp Stehr) and The Brew Crew (Jessica Shanahan, Caide Sharp and Gary Ntshangase)
Well done to all our multi sport athletes and we hope you continue your enthusiasm in the second term!
VOORTREKKER SPORTS DAY
The annual Voortrekker Sports Day took place on Saturday, 12 March. Our first rugby-, hockey- and netball teams woke up in the early hours of the morning to travel down to Pietermaritzburg.
Our boys played a very hard and physical game against the hosts, Voortrekker, in the final game of the day. They played their hearts out, and in the game words like fear, giving up and pain were non-existent in the vocabulary of the boys. Unfortunately the boys lost 0 – 19, which considering the calibre of Voortrekker High’s rugby, is an achievement in itself.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Thabani Mnisi who broke his jaw during the game. We wish him a speedy recovery.
The 1st team played seven games of 15 minutes each. The games were quick paced and due to the short time given, the scores were very close. The girls managed to win four of their games and unfortunately lost three. Many thanks to Mrs Madondo for driving the girls to PMB.
The hockey girls also played seven games of only 14 minutes each. They fared well, but unfortunately the matches were too short to capitalise on the many opportunities to score. Of the seven games, DHS won one, lost two and drew four. Thank you to the parents and Mr Lippke, the driver, for waking up in the early hours of the morning to ensure the girls have a successful day.
The following learners were chosen to represent KZNCB in a South African Development Bowls Tournament in Bloemfontein from 28 March – 1 April: Tian Wang, Lizwi Khumalo, Cebo Khubeka and Philasande Mdletshe.
Well done to these boys, we hope that you will once again return with a gold medal!
DHS is tremendously proud of the following learners who were selected to compete at the KZN athletics meeting which took place in Durban over the weekend of 11 March:
Emogéne van der Schyff, Lwandile Mdladla, Lethiwe Mathonsi, Sizwe Malokoane, Jan-Frederik van Zyl and Dean Lambert.
We eagerly await their results!
Good luck to all our teams going on tour over the March holiday. We trust the tours will be successful and everyone will return safely!
