Op Maart 16, Saterdagoggend , het drie van DHS se leerders aan die ATKV-redenaarskompetisie deelgeneem. Chinique Odendaal en Thealize Jacobs het aan die onvoorbereide toesprake deelgeneem terwyl Nicolene Janse van Rensburg aan die voorbereide toesprake deelgeneem het. Die dag het vlot verloop, bewende hande en al, en Chinique Odendaal is deur na die tweede ronde van die onvoorbereide toesprake, wat op 3 Junie 2016 in Durban sal plaasvind. BAie geluk aan al drie van die leerders want hierdie kompetisie verg baie moed, en almal word aangemoedig om dit minstens een maal te probeer.

DHS GR7 OPEN DAY

We would like to thank all the parents who attended. Their information packs are on their way and should reach them by the end of the week.
SPORT AGAINST FERRUM
On Saturday, May 14, our learners travelled to Ferrum High in Newcastle. We would like to thank Ferrum for hosting such a well organised day. All the teams thoroughly enjoyed their games.
The hockey went really well. The u/14s lost 0-1, u/16s drew 0-0, the 2nd team lost and the 1st team dominated the midfield but couldn’t capitalize on opportunities. The girls played their hearts out but Ferrum’s fitness won in the end and they scored a goal just before the final whistle. Zabe Zwane was the player of the match for her beautiful defending during the game.
The first team boys still have to play their match against Ferrum and the 2nd team boys won 2-0. Well played.
Unfortunately they lost all their games. The girls played really well and managed to keep their heads up during all these tough and challenging matches. We would like to thank them for all their hard work and dedication and we are happy to see that they are regarding these losses as a challenge to better themselves.
