Battle of the “Boodies”
On Tuesday, 17 January 2017, 14 excited teams lined up for the first annual DHS Battle of the “Boodies”. This is a challenge that was developed by all the sport coaches at Dundee High School to test both the mental and physical fitness of sport stars and even upcoming talent for the new season at DHS.
Op die woord het spanne weggespring na ses verskillende punte op die skool se sportgronde en het teen die horlosie gekompeteer om uiteindelik die fikste span in DHS gekroon te word. Daar was kleurvolle superhelde, spanne me uiterste selfvertroue en selfs ‘n paar graad 8’s wat die uitmergelende uitdaging aangepak het.
After much complaining, sitting down, heavy breathing and a bit of encouragement, all the teams that participated managed to complete the whole course. But one thing is definitely sure at Dundee High School this year: There is no shortage of spirit, fitness, natural talent and enthusiasm.
Ons wens almal wat deelneem aan die sportkodes van kwartaal een en twee (atletiek, multisport, swem, rugby, hokkie en netbal) alle voorspoed toe vir die komende seisoen en ons beaam ons skool se leuse: STRENIUS ARDUA CEDUNT!

Every year DHS hosts a festival that marks the end of Gr8 orientation. It is also a nice way for all the learners to enjoy the start of a new term and year at DHS. On Wednesday, 25 January 2017, our learners took to the field and enjoyed a messy but fun filled afternoon. Many could be seen running away anxiously from friends! Our learners were definitely more colourful and amusing after this festival.
