DHS ORATORS CAPTIVATE JUDGES AT THE DAILY NEWS/ROTARY TEAM TALK COMPETITION
On Tuesday, March 15, two enthusiastic teams left Dundee High to compete at the second round of the prestigious Daily News/Rotary public speaking competition. It was held at Sarel Cilliers High School where two teams from three schools (Sarel, DHS and Inkamana) took to the stage in order to impress three acclaimed judges. These judges were Mrs Helen Stevens , who is also a published writer, Mrs Jenny Mthembu and Mr Ntokozo Majola. It is significant to mention that all three judges were highly impressed by Hafsa Khan’s performance as a public speaker. She was named the speaker of the evening.
Trishen Pillay, Nomalungelo Mkhize and Krushil Sewmangal were invited to attend the semi-final round at St Dominic’s Academy which will take place on the 7 April 2016. They intrigued the judges with their insightful Rotary focuses on problems that affect the community.
Rotary encourage learners to find solutions to complicated issues and this competition focuses more on factual evidence rather than the technicalities of public speaking or figurative information. We are extremely proud of our learners for showing insight and maturity at this competition.
ATLETIEK – PLAASLIKKE TALENT BEREIK NUWE HOOGTEPUNTE OP DIE ATLETIEKVELD
Na ‘n lang atletiek seisoen waarin baie leerders hard gewerk het kan DHS met trots die vrugte daarvan pluk. Ses van ons atlete het deurgegaan na die Umzinyathi Distrikspan, wat gaan deelneem het in Durban by die KZN Kampioenskappe vanaf die 11de tot die 13de Maart 2016. Hulle is die volgende:
Jan-Frederik van Zyl, Emogene van der Schyff, Dean Lambert, Sizwe Malakoane, Lwandile Mdladla en Lethiwe Mathonzi.
Uit hierdie leerders het Dean Lambert en Jan-Frederik van Zyl eerste plekke verwerf in hul ouderdomsgroepe en Emogene van der Schyff het ‘n tweede plek behaal in spiesgooi. Met Jan-Frederik se 58.50 meter, het hy verseker dat hy ‘n uitnodiging kry om by die Suid Afrikaanse Skole Atletiek byeenkoms in Bloemfontein deel te neem. Hy het ‘n persoonlike beste afstand van 60.06 meter gegooi in sy o/15 ouderdomsgroep. Hy was tot in die laaste rondte tweede en het toe uiteindelik vierde geëindig. Knapgedaan Jan-Frederik!
We left early on Saturday in order to support the hockey, rugby and netball at Voortrekker High in Pietermaritzburg. The learners camped at Midmar Dam and had an amazing time. On Race Day, everything went well. The athletes had a choppy swim and it was extremely hot!!! Christiaan van Dyk managed to come second in his age group. Ons het baie teëspoed gehad met pap wiele en stukkende kettings, maar ons is dankbaar dat God se beskermende hand oor ons was. Die fietswaentjie het hier in Dundee reg voor die skool gebreek en die fietse het erg skade opgedoen – maar gelukkig is ons veilig. Ons sien uit na meer avonture in die tweede kwartaal!
SPORT AGAINST ST. DOMINIC’S ACADEMY
On Wednesday, March 16, many excited teams travelled to St Dominics to compete in some of the first matches of the season. The scores were as follows:
NETBALL: u/15 won 16 – 5, 2nd team won 18 – 1, 1st team won 41 – 5.
GIRLS’ HOCKEY: 1st team drew 0 – 0, 2nd team won 1 – 0
BOYS’ HOCKEY: 1st team won 1- 0, 2nd team won 3 – 0
CHESS: The first chess matches of the season took place at St Dominic’s Academy in Newcastle. The games were played in the open pavilion on their spectacular sports fields. It was a treat for the chess players to take part amongst the Netball and Hockey games rather than being stuck in a hot classroom. The competitive atmosphere motivated our players to perform at their best and we managed to win 7 games out of a total of 13 games played. Congratulations goes out to the following learners who won their matches: Ridwaan Ntombela, Pariksha Sewpaul, Sinaye Masuku, Claudio Gopie, Musa Radebe, Luyanda Lukele, Sithembiso Ndwandwe.
The Netball girls did extremely well at the Voortrekker Sport Day! They won four out of seven games and the scores were as follows: DHS 5 – EMP 2, DHS 10 – KE 3, DHS 4 – PN 6, DHS 9 – Sarel 3, DHS 3 – KUS 8, DHS 3 – LOF 4, DHS 6 – Kings 1. We are looking forward to an exciting netball season ahead!
